With over 50 events across the country and over 10,000 participants, the nation’s largest gathering of the PKD community is our signature fundraising and public awareness event—the Walk for PKD.

Since 2000, the Walk for PKD has raised over $33 million for PKD research.

Recently, dollars raised for research have gone toward:

  • Funding 19 researchers through $2.87 million in grants in 2020
  • Supporting the expansion of the ADPKD Registry
  • Expanding our leadership role in the Polycystic Kidney Disease Outcomes Consortium (PKDOC)

Join us and help us move PKD research forward.
