PKD Awareness Day 2019

PKD affects thousands in Canada and millions worldwide, yet many people have never heard of it. Together, we can change this! #PKDAwarenessDay (#Sept4) is our day to raise awareness about this disease and the negative impact it has on generation after generation. Don't forget to use #PKDAwarenessDay and #endPKD to join the online conversation. The more people that know about #PKD, the closer we can get to treatments and a cure. Together, let's raise awareness and end PKD! 

33 Mayors across Canada recognized PKD Awareness day; a new record for the PKDFOC! Additionally, 20 END PKD flags were flown at City Halls and countless monuments were lit teal as well; including the CN Tower, the Calgary Tower and Niagara Falls!
