ABOUT TOUR DAVITA
Tour DaVita is a three-day bicycle ride in which about 500-600 riders cover some 250 miles. More importantly, it is a way to raise awareness for the “silent killer” called chronic kidney disease (CKD) – which, if left untreated, can progress to kidney failure and the need for dialysis or a transplant.
But wait a minute: Isn't DaVita a dialysis company? Yes, but a goal of reducing the need for our services is the right thing to do. Every day, we see firsthand the devastating effects that kidney failure can have on a person’s body and mind. While we work to discover innovative ways to help our patients live their best lives in spite of their disease, we will also be faithful to help prevent it when possible.
