Your rider would be honored to have your support!
To make it onto Tour DaVita roster, a person must raise a set amount of funds well in advance of the Tour. Your tax-deductable donation* benefits Bridge of Life, which saves lives through early-detection testing, kidney care education, and increased access to primary care and dialysis treatment in underserved communities around the world. It also enables your rider to experience the Ride of a Lifetime!
If your rider is a DaVita teammate, they must also use their personal time off and pay their own airfare or other travel expenses to and from the starting point. Then there’s the really hard part -- training and conditioning so they’ll be able to cycle 80-100 miles per day!
Tour DaVita is a chance for riders to give back to the healthcare community while pushing themselves beyond their achievable limits with the support of fellow teammates, friends and family members. The ride is not a race, but a chance for nearly 600 riders to get together for one cause, to help make a fundamental impact on the communities in which we live and serve.
"For our riders, Tour DaVita has become more than just a cycling fundraiser. Every year, as it grows larger, we continue to raise awareness of kidney disease and funds for medical missions while celebrating our teammates and their commitment to caring for our patients. We are continually awed by our riders', teammates' and sponsors' dedication to this cause."
