2019 Bike to the Moon
Help me get to the Moon for PKD
Amount Raised
Fundraising Goal $500.00

My Message

I have been a nurse for over 32 years and have looked after patients with kidney disease for the last 23.  Many of my patients and their family members have kidney failure from a gentic disease called Polycystic Kidney Disease.  The Bike to the Moon fundraiser is a small way that can give back to them with helping fund research to end this disease so the families can be rid of the disease.

The Bike to the Moon is the PKD Foundation of Canada's newest fundraising event, aiming to raise $30,000 in 2019. With each participant and each kilometre travelled, we will move closer to discovering more treatments and a cure for polycystic kidney disease (PKD). PKD is one of the most common life-threatening genetic diseases affecting approximately 66,000 Canadians and 12.5 million people worldwide. It equally affects men, women and children – regardless of age, race, geography or ethnic origin. 

The funds raised will directly support critical Canadian PKD research within the Hereditary Kidney Disease Program at Toronto General Hospital led by Dr. York Pei, MSc, MD, FRCPC. With your help, we can look forward to a time when no one will have to suffer the full effects of PKD.

Donate today to help us end PKD and collectively we will bike all the way to the moon to bring us to the ultimate finish line: A cure for PKD!
