first news of walk results

I received the following email this evening from the Minnesota Chapter of the PKD Foundation:

"Hello to all you supporters of PKD research.

It was another record year for the MN Walk for PKD!!

There were 771 participants (compared to approximately 700 in 2006, 500 in 2005 and 250 in 2004) in the MN Walk for PKD. As of today, the MN Walk for PKD raised $160,000 for PKD research (compared to approximately $140,000 at this time last year, $100,000 in 2005 and $55,000 in 2004).
Thanks to all of you, volunteers and participants, for this great success. One day, when we have a drug treatment to manage PKD, maybe even a cure, YOU will have the satisfaction of knowing that YOU were part of the solution!!"

It's great to see all of the numbers heading upward! Hopefully, the Hudson Valley Walk will have similar news soon. I'll certainly pass it along once I hear something.
