is our 2021 fundraising goal
of Walk donations fund
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.
If you would like to restrict your Walk fundraising to ARPKD research, sign up for the ARPKD Research Fund.
Kick off the Walk by setting a personal fundraising challenge like raising $500 through Facebook or recruiting 10 donors in 10 days.

Why We Walk: Research Spotlight
100% of donations fund PKD Research and research is critical to ending PKD. Support the Walk by sharing one of our research facts and encouraging your friends and family to donate.
Our mission is to fund research, advocate for patients, and build a community for all impacted by PKD. Today, we will be sharing stories from our community and encourage you to share your own.
