For passionate advocate for kidney disease research David Rush, one of the first signs something wasn’t right with his health was how tight his socks would get around his ankles. Early in his kidney disease, the swelling prevented him from wearing his favorite bright, colorful statement socks. Once he got his kidney transplant, David knew he was making progress when he could start bring his love of fashion back to his feet again.
To honor David’s and the 850 million people with kidney disease, we’re showing our socks to raise awareness about kidney health for everyone everywhere.
Here’s how you can participate:
1. On World Kidney Day – March 11th – wear your boldest, most colorful socks.
2. Show us your socks! Either solo or in a pair, snap a pic of your socks to share.
3. Post to Twitter or Instagram tagging @NU_Nephrology and the hashtag #SockItToKidneyDisease.
Together, we can de-feet kidney disease!
