Local Events and Meetings
Chapter meetings are another opportunity for you to have your questions and concerns about PKD addressed. We will do our best to provide you with answers or direct you to someone that can assist you. Everyone is welcome!
Although the Detroit Chapter does not have any meetings planned at this time, we would still love to hear from you! If you have any questions concerning support meetings, please email our Volunteer Chapter Coordinator, Elizabeth, at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Kids Made Their Mark at the 2014 Detroit Walk!
Kids are helping to lead the way to a better tomorrow. Our top fundraiser is Dante Houseworth of Troy. Dante, 12 years old, wanted to join the Walk for PKD when he found out about his mom's friend who is affected with PKD and is anxiously waiting for a kidney donor. He reached his goal by cutting grass.
A big thanks to all of our fundraisers for your hard work and thoughtfulness!
