The Walk for PKD is the largest polycystic kidney disease (PKD) fundraising and awareness event that is held coast to coast. 100% of funds raised go toward funding essential research.

A cure is our finish line. Since 2000, the Walk has raised over $35M for the PKD Foundation to help improve the lives of those living with PKD. The event brings together patients, caregivers, physicians, and researchers to strengthen the PKD community and help fund life-saving research.

We’re excited to gather across the nation, and with our Walk for PKD —Your Way experience, 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.

Walk for PKD – Your Way!

Don’t have a Walk near you? You can have your own! Whether it’s a family reunion or a gathering of your loved ones at your local park, you can Walk for PKD—Your Way. A cure is our finish line.

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