Why Walk?
The Walk to END PKD is the PKD Foundation of Canada's signature fundraising event, raising more than $1,021,000 since 2007.  This has helped move us closer to finding treatments.  The money also helps provide education and support services, both online and in local communities.  
 
We've made great strides but need your help in keeping the momentum going. We know we can exceed the $168,000 raised last year by recruiting more participants and engaging every walker in fundraising.  With your help, we can look forward to a time when no one will have to suffer the full effects of PKD.  Sign up today and help us END PKD!   
 
Even if you are unable to attend the Walk to END PKD or don't have an event in your area, you can still make an incredible impact in raising awareness and funds for critical PKD research!  By making a personal donation, your efforts will help strengthen the direct funding of the PKD Foundation of Canada's mission to promote programs of research, advocacy, education, support and awareness in order to discover treatments and cure for PKD and improve the lives of all it affects!  
Remember - every dollar raised brings us that much closer to the ultimate finish line:  A cure for PKD!
