On November 6, 2016, I will be running in the NYC Marathon to raise money for PKD. This will be my first-ever marathon and I can't say it was on my to-do list. I do know it will probably be one of the most difficult physical challenges I'll ever face, but I'm humbled that the PKD foundation has invited me to run for their moving cause. Hopefully the foundation inspires you to donate, the way it inspired me to run 26+ miles! (yikes)
PKD is one of the most common, life-threatening genetic deseases out there - 1 in 20,000 children are affected with ARPKD, and it is the 4th leading cause of kidney failure.
PKD equally affects people of all races, genders, and nationalities, geographic locations and income levels. the PKD foundation is the only organization dedicated to finding treatments and a cure or polycystic kidney disease.
All donations make a difference, and your support is so much appreciated!
