'Give PKD the Bump' has launched

Support our first-ever European PKD Awareness & Fundraising Campaign organised by the PKD Charity and PKD patient organisations in France, Germany, Italy, Spain and Switzerland to spread the word about Polycystic Kidney Disease and raise funds for much-needed research.

PKD logo ENGLISH RGB.200pxThe campaign is called 'Give PKD the Bump'. We're using the symbol of a 'fist' as our logo. Normal, healthy kidneys are the size of a fist. PKD kidneys can swell up to 4 times in size and 100 times heavier. We want our PKD kidneys to return to normal size and be healthy again. So get your fists out and join us to 'Give PKD the Bump'!

How you can get involved and help #BumpPKD

Take part in a viral 'fist bumping' online challenge - make a video of yourself 'Giving PKD the Bump' and nominate your family, friends and colleagues to do a fist bump on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Flickr and YouTube. Find out how to make a fist bump video here. Use the #BumpPKD hashtag when you upload and we will display your videos on a global social wall.

If you don't want to make a video, just upload a photo of you fist bumping at home, school or work. Don't forget the #BumpPKD hashtag when you share online.

#BumpPKD educational posters to inform people about PKD.
