A MESSAGE FROM

Quotation

Hello Friends, Family, and collegues!

Thank you for your interest in sponsoring me for 2020 Virtual Tour DaVita! Your support — whether moral, financial or both — means more than you know.

As you probably know, Tour DaVita is an event that is near and dear to our hearts for many reason's. Last year Jervis completed his first official ride after years of only sponsoring, but not participating in the event. THIS year I was going to be participating as well after starting to actively train for the 3 day, 150+ mile bike ride, but sadly due to Covid-19 the event has been made virtual. Jervis and myself will be physically riding our bikes during the time of the event to raise funds for Bridge Of Life, to raise awareness for kidney disease and dialysis, and to remind ourselves and everyone around us the importance of eating healthy, getting exercise, and getting outdoors - especially during the Covid-19 pandemic. Anything you can do to support this great cause is appreciated, and we are working through ways to virtually share our riding journey with you all.

Virtual Tour DaVita is so much more than an event. I will make it an amazing adventure and a physical challenge, but it’s also an extension of our day-to-day calling to “give life” to others.

Bridge of Life (BOL), an independent 501(c)(3) public charity founded by DaVita Inc., is an international nonprofit organization working to strengthen health care globally through sustainable programs that prevent and treat chronic disease and currently to combat COVID-19 with its partners in vulnerable communities around the world. COVID-19 does not respect borders and will have a devastating impact on people in countries that have weak health systems and are less prepared to combat the disease. BOL supporters will help to provide lifesaving PPE, train dialysis clinicians on COVID-19 prevention and provide resources to educate community health workers and patients in countries like Haiti, Nigeria and Guatemala.

If we can all do a little, then together we can make a big impact on our world. I’d appreciate your support — any amount will help!

Also, would you consider sending a link to this page to your friends and family? I’d like to have them on my support team, too.
