National Polycystic Kidney Disease Awareness Day

September 4, 2021​


Polycystic kidney disease (PKD) causes abnormal cysts to develop and grow in the kidneys, and the enlargement of cysts causes kidney function to decline. It equally affects men, women and children – regardless of geography or ethnic origin; and


the PKD Foundation of Canada is the only national charitable organization dedicated to fighting PKD, a progressive, life-threatening genetic disease, through programs of research, advocacy, education, support and awareness in order to discover vital treatments and a cure for PKD and improve the lives of all it affects; and


on September 26th, a virtual walk will take place all across Canada to honour friends, family and supporters impacted by PKD to help raise funds for research and improve the quality of life for those afflicted with PKD, including many Bradford West Gwillimbury residents.


That His Worship Mayor Rob Keffer and Members of Council proclaim September 4, 2021 as National Polycystic Kidney Disease Awareness Day in the Town of Bradford West Gwillimbury.
