SAN ANTONIO -- The San Antonio Walk for PKD, Polycystic Kidney Disease, is Saturday, Sept. 24, in Brackenridge Park. Registration begins at 7:30 a.m., with the walk starting at 9:15. Dogs on leashes may walk with their owners. Registration is free, and $100 in donations earns a T-shirt.

For every dollar raised, 77 cents directly funds critical programs of PKD research, education, and awareness.

There are two kinds of PKD, Autosomal Dominant PKD and Autosomal Recessive PKD.

PKD affects more people than cystic fibrosis, muscular dystrophy, hemophilia, Down syndrome, and sickle cell anemia combined.

PKD affects men, women, and children regardless of age, race, geography, or ethnic origin. It does not skip a generation.

There is no treatment or cure for PKD; when kidneys fail due to many cysts, dialysis and transplantation are the only treatment options.

Research is the only hope for finding a cure. Through the PKD Foundation, walks are held each year in various cities throughout the United States to raise awareness and funds to help find a cure.

Everyone is invited to participate in this once-a-year event. Events start at 9:15 a.m. with free breakfast items and activities for children under 12, including the penny dash, moon bounce, and more. Information about two research trials going on in San Antonio also will be available.

Various options for supporting PKD are available. For more information, visit www.pkdcure.org/Sanantoniowalk.

For more information, contact sananto-niowalk@pkdcure.org, contact Patti O’Grady Ruffin at 210-408-2581 or 210-414-6614, or pruffin1@swbell.net; or contact Dene Kyrish at 512-663-9802 or lkyrish@yahoo.com.
