Tour DaVita 2011
logo & background

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.


DaVita Village Trust (DVT) combines the programs of Bridge of Life-DaVita Medical Missions and The Kidney TRUST, and aspires to improve community health, wellness and vitality, including chronic kidney disease education, prevention and treatment. With your support, this year DaVita Village Trust will be able to complete 18 international medical missions and install or repair 80 dialysis machines that will expand access to quality dialysis treatment for more than 440 new patients around the world. Additionally, DaVita Village Trust will be able provide free, rapid screenings for more than 12,000 people in at-risk and underserved communities.

DVT is a 501(c)(3) public charity. The full amount of your contribution is tax deductible for federal income tax purposes. The Federal EIN for DaVita Village Trust is 46-2960097.

A Message From Joseph Da Cruz


Yes it's me again. I'm getting ready for 2011 Tour DaVita. My son Mike will be attending also. He has advised that he is going to whip me on the ride this year. I told him he will, someday but not today! 

I wanted to let you know that I am participating in Tour DaVita this September to raise awareness about kidney disease.  I need your support and encouragement!

Kidney disease is a serious problem that affects 30 million Americans.  One in nine Americans actually has kidney disease, but few know it. I am among many people across the country riding in the event and raising funds for The Kidney TRUST.  I support the TRUST’s mission of creating a world of hope, health, action and engagement for those affected by chronic kidney disease.


I'm hoping that you will be part of my support team. Any amount you can give will make a difference.

What can you do?

Give. Make a donation to my fundraising campaign by clicking on the button titled "Sponsor Me Now."   If you prefer to write a check, please let me know, and I'll send you the information and form.  On Tour DaVita website, you can also find out more on the importance of this event and and people that will be helped by the money and awareness we all raise.

Spread the Word.  DaVita’s  primary goal is to raise awareness about kidney disease.  You can help by registering online with Tour DaVita, and setting up your own Fundraising Page.  You can then send an email to your friends and family educating them about kidney disease, and giving them a chance to donate too.

Thanks again for your support!
