Penny Kids Dash

When we say unite to fight PKD, we mean everyone!

Penny Kids Dash

Get the kids involved! The Penny Kids Dash is a great way for children to join in the fun and help fundraise during the Walk for PKD.

On Walk day, kids can participate in the Penny Kids Dash—a short, fun run included as part of the day’s events.

Who can participate

All registered children 12 and under can participate in the Penny Kids Dash.

Fun fundraising ideas for kids

Give your little ones a hand with these tips to get them started and on the way to becoming fundraising super stars.

  • Ask your principal to allow for a school jeans day
  • Get friends to join in penny wars
  • Host a Lemonade stand
  • Do a car wash in your neighborhood
  • Do chores for donations
  • Ask for donations instead of birthday gifts

Need a place to keep all that change? Help your kids color and cut out this label and attach it to an empty water bottle to collect change. Then have your kids bring it to your local Walk when they participate in the Penny Kids Dash.

We want to hear about your creative, fun idea to get your kids involved!  Send us photos from your fundraiser and we will post them here!
