August 2016 – PKD Charity

Our seventh charity run, on 20 August 2016, was organised by Kay Turner. Kay was raising money for PKD Charity.

Kay said "To date £120 has been made for the charity from the runners. On Saturday 20th August 9 members plus Molly the beagle turned up to run Walsall parkrun. In addition to this several other members completed their runs virtually. All of this has gone towards raising awareness and money for the PKD charity. This charity is for patients who have Polycystic Kidney Disease. I've been raising for this charity for 2 years now after my husband & our son (now 5yrs old) found out they both have this disease. It's important I fundraise for this charity as it's a small unknown charity but they are funding research which is vital to one day finding a cure. Thank you to everyone who has helped!"
