Thank you to everyone who attended and supported the 2023 Walk for PKD. Fundraising remains open until Dec. 31. Help us reach our goal by donating to your local Walk for PKD  today. A cure is our finish line!

There’s a new way ADPKD Registry participants can step up to provide hope today, and for future generations. The nation’s first dedicated ADPKD Registry is now also one of the first patient registries of any kind to integrate patient-provided health records. Share your health records through your provider’s online portal with a few simple steps on the ADPKD Registry. 

Now, as always, the PKD Foundation is committed to our mission of giving hope, advocating for patients, and building a community for all impacted by PKD. We'll continue supporting our community by providing important resources and timely updates on social media. If you have questions or need help navigating this unprecedented health crisis, we are here for you. Email or call (844) PKD-HOPE.

This could be you!

Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) has played a huge role in my 25 years of life. I have lost my grandmother and my dad to this disease; however, I am hopeful a cure will be found soon. My whole family is so thankful for the Foundation for all the support they provide to this cause. Volunteering is one way that I hope to bring awareness and commemorate my grandmother and dad.
