The nation’s largest gathering of the PKD community is our signature fundraising and public awareness event—the Walk for PKD.

We’re excited to return to in-person events this fall while maintaining the robust virtual Walk program we’ve developed over the last two years.

With nearly 50 events across the country and our virtual event, anyone can join us!

Since 2000 the Walk for PKD has raised over $34 million for PKD research. Recently, dollars raised have gone toward:

  • Funding 22 researchers through $2.99 million in grants in 2021. 
  • Supporting the expansion of the ADPKD Registry.
  • Expanding our leadership role in the Polycystic Kidney Disease Outcomes Consortium (PKDOC).
