The Walk for PKD is the largest fundraising event for polycystic kidney disease (PKD), raising over $36 million since the year 2000. At the event, the PKD Foundation brings together patients, physicians, and researchers to strengthen the community for all impacted by PKD. When you ask your friends and family to support you and the Walk for PKD, 100% of each donation will fund life-saving research.

We’re excited to gather across the country this fall, and with a virtual option, everyone can be a part of our vision to end PKD.


Register today and make a difference in the lives of hundreds of thousands of Americans and millions worldwide living with PKD.

We can’t wait to see you at a Walk for PKD event this fall!
