Bike to the Moon is an annual PKD Foundation of Canada global bikeathon. Collectively, we aim to bike the distance to the moon (384,400 km) and raise funds for critical Canadian PKD research within the Hereditary Kidney Disease Program at Toronto General Hospital.

How do I participate? Bike to the Moon is an event that is perfect for both casual and serious cyclists. You can participate any time during June 22-25, 2018 by planning your ride solo, rallying a group of friends together or by organizing a community event. Choose a route in your own community or spend the weekend exploring new territories.

How many kilometres do I need to ride? Whether you bike 1 km on one day or 400 km over four days, every dollar raised and every kilometre cycled brings a closer to the ultimate finish line: A cure for PKD.


Why Ride?

Polycystic kidney disease (PKD) is one of the most common life-threatening genetic diseases affecting thousands in Canada. You can have an impact on all those affected by this disease by organizing a ride and by creating your virtual fundraising page where you can join others in the fight to end PKD!

If you are unable to ride this year, there is still a lot you can do to help! Volunteer to raise funds for Bike to the Moon by setting up a virtual donation page to support the ride’s fundraising efforts, or help promote awareness and education by sharing pamphlets about PKD in your community.
