HOPe for CURE PKD Fundraiser
danceScape and students contributed nearly $1,000 to the event … from donations of Dance lessons, ticket purchases (thanks to students who pre-registered, but also those who dropped in last minute!), Silent Auction purchases, and last but not least to Gord for topping up the “Matching Funds” donation (which resulted in three sponsors donating an additional $1,000 each!)
PKD is one of the most common, life-threatening genetic diseases in the world; affecting approximately 66,000 Canadians and 12.5 million people worldwide. There is no treatment or cure for this disease. PKD will threaten the lives of every generation of every afflicted family until one is found. It equally affects men, women and children – regardless of geography or ethnic origin. The mission of the PKD Foundation of Canada is to promote programs of research, advocacy, education, support and awareness in order to discover treatments and a cure for PKD.
