Polycystic kidney disease — one of the most common, life-threatening genetic diseases — strikes both adults and children. It often leads to the need for dialysis and a kidney transplant. It affects thousands in America and millions worldwide, who are in urgent need of treatments and a cure.
The Walk/Run for PKD is the PKD Foundation's largest annual fundraising event. Funds raised from Walks across the country make up one third of our annual budget.
My immediate family has now grown to 6 which is such a blessing but also makes finding a cure that much more important. I want to be able to see my children's children grow up and change the world. I hope that we find a treatment or a cure in my lifetime and there is definitley hope with all of the new research. In fact I am in a clinical trial now to help find a treatment for the effects of PKD!
The more money our walkers/runner raise, the more we can do in the fight to end PKD!
You can help by joining the Walk/Run as a participant, volunteer or donor.
Together, we can walk boldly toward a future where no one suffers the full effects of PKD.
