A MESSAGE FROM

Laura Mason

Quotation

As most of you know, Nels has been participating in Tour DaVita for several years. Every year he encourages me to join him, but the depth of the commitment - think flying across the country to sleep in an open field of tents in whatever weather conditions happen to occur and using portable restrooms for three days - always stops me.

This year's virtual tour was made for me! I can contribute to a good cause by biking for three days, returning each night to enjoy indoor plumbing and a soft bed in my cozy home. I hope you will be interested in sponsoring me for 2020 Virtual Tour DaVita! Your support — whether moral, financial or both — means a lot to me.

Virtual Tour DaVita is more than a three day event for Nels and me. We will do training rides all summer until I can catch up with him in the stamina department. We hope to do some long rides on the days of the tour, and are considering locations such as Snoqualmie Pass and The San Juan Islands for our rides. If you have ideas for good rides in the 40 - 60 mile range, let us know. We will make it an adventure and a physical challenge, all in the interest of supporting others through DaVita's Bridge of Life at a time when dialysis is in high demand. 


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!

Many thanks,

Laura

About Virtual Tour DaVita

Everyone is welcome to join the virtual Tour DaVita 2020. Due to COVID-19, this year’s event will look much different than those in the past. Individuals will pick an outdoor activity and create their own Moving Village with family, friends or their social distancing community.
