Kids Made Their Mark at the 2014 Detroit Walk!
Kids are helping to lead the way to a better tomorrow. Our top fundraiser is Dante Houseworth of Troy. Dante, 12 years old, wanted to join the Walk for PKD when he found out about his mom's friend who is affected with PKD and is anxiously waiting for a kidney donor. He reached his goal by cutting grass.
A big thanks to all of our fundraisers for your hard work and thoughtfulness!
