PKD is one of the most common, life-threatening genetic kidney diseases affecting thousands in America. People with PKD develop fluid-filled cysts in their kidneys, causing the kidney to enlarge to the size of a football and requires dialysis and/or kidney transplantation. Because PKD is a genetic disease, entire families are directly affected. Parents have a 50% chance of passing it to each of their children, impacting future generations.
The annual Walk for PKD is the signature fundraising and awareness event for the PKD Foundation each year. It is a family-oriented, dog friendly event raising money towards research for the disease. The North Texas community is currently in the process of forming walk teams, soliciting supporters, sponsors and in-kind donations for this annual event.
