There's still time to show your support for the 2020 Virtual Walk to END PKD, the PKD Foundation of Canada's signature fundraising campaign!

After careful thought and consideration related to COVID-19, the PKD Foundation of Canada made the decision this year to turn our signature fundraising event, the #WalkToENDPKD, into a virtual fundraising celebration - that took place on SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 27th! As always, the health and safety of our PKD family comes first, and we felt this is the best approach to take at this time. 

To keep things simple, the online registration and fundraising process remained the same as previous years. The only major change was instead of a select few large public gatherings, you now had the opportunity to choose your own path locally and walk for a cure with your immediate family and friends. We had a unique opportunity in 2020 as a nation to walk together in spirit, united in the fight to #endPKD

This year, the Walk to END PKD signified a group united in spirit, moving towards treatment and a cure for PKD, one of the most common life-threatening genetic diseases affecting thousands in Canada.

You can still have an impact on all those affected by this disease, where you can join others in the fight to end PKD.  Every dollar raised brings us closer to our ultimate finish line- a cure for PKD!#ACureIsOurFinishLine!

 

Why Walk? The Walk to END PKD is the PKD Foundation of Canada's signature fundraising event, raising more than $1,680,000 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.  With your help, we can look forward to a time when no one will have to suffer the full effects of PKD.  Donate today and help us END PKD!  

Even if you were unable to attend the Walk to END PKD, 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!
