Dozens Join Longview Charity Walk

A charity walk was held in Longview this morning to raise research money for a common but little-known disease.   Around 150 people turned out at Letourneau University for the first Walk for P.K.D. Polycystic Kidney Disease is a genetic disease where cysts form on the kidney. It causes extreme pain and the kidneys swell to enormous size.  Federal funding is desperately needed. Many who walked today suffer from P.K.D. Today's walk raised more than $12,000 for the P.K.D. foundation.
