Please support kidney kid Jakob

Check out what Jakob one of our wonderful kidney kids is doing!


This year Jakob wants to do the ASB kids marathon and help raise funds for Kidney Kids NZ.

“Jakob is a happy 6 year old who has faced many challenges in his life. He was born with a single kidney with vesicoureteral reflux and hydronephrosis. His first operation was at 5 weeks old and after many an operation is doing really well. Despite having a mitrofanoff stoma, Jakob is an active, confident and inspirational little guy who lives life to the fullest. He started school last year and continues to flourish. As a family we are grateful for all the love and care we received from starship and Kidney kids NZ as they played a big role in helping us raise such a brave kid.”

After seeing his Mum finish the 11km traverse the last two years and his uncle complete the full ASB marathon last year he has wanted to do it himself. So this year Jakob will be completing the ASB kids marathon… “We know that this will be really great for his confidence, promote a healthy lifestyle, raise awareness for Kidney kids NZ and be a really fun experience for our family.”

Wow Jacob the Kidney Kids Team think you are an inspiration and wish you all the very best!
