Polycystic kidney disease (PKD) is one of the most common, life-threatening genetic kidney diseases affecting thousands in America and millions worldwide. People with PKD develop fluid-filled cysts in their kidneys which cause them to increase in size and decrease in function. Kidneys can grow to be as large as footballs and weigh up to 30 pounds. The PKD Foundation has been leading the fight against PKD for over 30 years through research, education, advocacy, support and awareness. The website for PKD is click for details. The Walk for PKD is the signature fundraiser event for the PKD Foundation. For more information and to register, go to walkforpkd.org/sanantonio
