Please join individuals, families, friends, and supporters for the annual Walk for PKD to end Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD). The PKD Walk, organized by the St. Louis Chapter of the PKD Foundation, is collecting donations in an effort to reach their $35,000 annual goal. 100% of money raised for the Walk goes toward life-saving research.

To register or donate, visit https://pkdfoundation.salsalabs.org/stlouiswalk/index.html

PKD is a life-threatening genetic kidney disease striking both children and adults. Parents with PKD have a 50 percent chance of passing PKD to each of their children. Once a person has kidney failure, the only treatment options are dialysis or a transplant. Approximately 600,000 Americans and 12.5 million worldwide have PKD.

The PKD Foundation is the largest and only private funder of PKD research in the US solely dedicated to finding treatments and a cure to improve the lives of those it affects. The St Louis chapter organized and run by an all-volunteer committee is one of nearly 60 local chapters throughout the country.
