Celebrate World Kidney Day & Sock It to Kidney Disease! Why We Sock It to Kidney Disease For passionate kidney disease research advocate and hip-hop artist 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 bringing his love of fashion back to his feet again. To honor David and the 850 million people with kidney disease, we’re showing our socks to raise awareness about kidney health for everyone everywhere. How You Can Participate On March 9th, wear your boldest, brightest, most colorful socks. Show us your socks! Either solo or in a pair, snap a pic of your socks to share. Post to Instagram or Twitter with hashtags #SockItToKidneyDisease and #WorldKidneyDay and tag @NU_Nephrology. We hope you’ll join us!
