What is Give PKD the Bump?

How Can We Accomplish this?

The PKD fist is a symbol that shows that we are striving for fist-sized kidneys for everybody. Working together with you, we can achieve our mission through a culmination of fundraising and awareness activities, including:

International PKD Awareness Days

This year, the international PKD awareness days are held on the 30th September and 1st October and coincide with the launch of the Give PKD the Bump campaign. These two days, which symbolise that we should all have two healthy kidneys, will be a chance to actively show your support and take charge in helping Give PKD the Bump.

By organising, promoting and attending fundraising events you can help raise awareness of the disease.

International PKD Awareness Days are on the 30th September and the 1st October

Social Media

We are increasing awareness of PKD through social media, shared by you and driven by the hashtag: #BumpPKD. The social element of the campaign reaches people across a range of media channels, such as Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, encouraging the public to get involved.

Posts with informative facts about PKD sit next to examples of how people are getting involved across Europe. You can get involved by ‘fist bumping’ with your family members and friends, before nominating three others in your network to do the same. By creating your own viral video you can help make people aware of PKD and encourage your friends to do the same.

PKD Pin Badges

By purchasing a PKD pin badge you can show your support for the fight against PKD, as well as helping to raise money.

You can wear the pin badge with pride and find out more information about PKD from the accompanying leaflet.

Fundraising Events

Help us raise awareness of PKD in your local area. Holding an awareness event is not only a good excuse to have some fun, but is also a great way to help people to understand the condition and its impact on the lives of those affected. Fundraising events are an important way to spread awareness whilst raising money for PKD.
