News and Information
July 11 - 15, 2014
The Transplant Games of America is a multi-sport festival event for individuals that have undergone life-saving transplant surgeries. The games are more than an athletic event! They highlight the importance of organ donation and celebrate the lives of organ donors and recipients. For more information about the 2014 Transplant Games of America and to register to participate, visit www.transplantgamesofamerica.org.
The PKD Foundation plans to attend the 2014 games to celebrate with PKD patients that have received a kidney transplant, living kidney donors and their families. If you plan to participate, please take our brief survey!
Registration for fall Walks is now open. With more than 50 Walks across the country and the Virtual Walk, we can all unite to fight PKD.
Local Events and Meetings

Plan your own Event!
All of the events that take place in the Nashville PKD Foundation Chapter, large or small, only happen because someone decided to organize them. We are always receiving checks for $50 to $500 from people who have put together a craft fair, bake sale, gotten their business to sponsor a casual day or any of a dozen other things.
There are also people who have decided they have the time and energy to put on a major event or who are connected to church or school group who help them put on a major event. Many other charities are starting to connect with sororities, fraternities, or other social organizations to put on an annual event and you can too!
If you have an idea for an event that you would like to put together, or if you have a business, church or community group that may like to get involved, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll help you get the ball rolling.

Presented by Howard R. Winokuer, Ph.D.
Dealing with the reality of PKD is a very difficult situation. It is challenging to know how to talk to your children, even young adults, about PKD. As a result of attending this webinar, you will understand how to talk with your teen or young adult about PKD. Our presenter for this webinar is Howard R. Winokuer, Ph.D. Fran Towey, Jr., and his daughter Katie will also join us to share their story of being diagnosed with PKD as a teen.
PKD Discussion forums provide a place for patients, family and friends to make connections, ask questions and share stories and experiences.
