Austin Walk for PKD
Come together for our signature fundraising event to benefit Polycystic Kidney Disease research and awareness. PKD - one of the most common, life-threatening genetic diseases — causes cysts to grow and kidney function to decrease. It affects generations of families, striking both adults and children leading to the need for dialysis and a kidney transplant. The Walk for PKD brings a group of volunteers, walkers and supporters together to unite to find treatments and a cure for polycystic kidney disease. We will continue to walk until no one has to suffer the full effects of this devastating disease. Currently there is no treatment or cure but thanks to our supporters - there is hope! The Austin walk is only 1.3 miles. Refreshments and coffee will be provided by local businesses along with great prize drawings, information and live music. Pre-registration is suggested. The event is free but donations and fundraising is expected. We walk rain or shine!
