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 during our 10 Days. 1 Goal. virtual Walk event this year and help us move PKD research forward.

The fundraising continues!

We need $200,000 more to reach our goal. Help us raise $1 million for PKD research by December 31. It’s easy to give:


Donate to a team or individual.


Donate to the ARPKD Research Fund.


Support the Walk nearest you with a general donation.

Please give generously to ensure researchers don’t go unfunded this year. A cure is our finish line.
