A MESSAGE FROM

Melinda Harris

Quotation

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.  I am very excited to be participating in my very first Tour DaVita.  My personal challenge is to complete 20 hiking miles over the three day event. 

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.

Our 2020 beneficiary is Bridge of Life (BOL), a nonprofit organization founded by DaVita, Inc. working to strengthen health care globally and currently to combat COVID-19 with its global partners in communities around the world. COVID-19 does not respect borders and will have a devastating impact on the most vulnerable people in countries that have weak health systems and are less prepared to combat the disease. BOL is working tirelessly to ensure it is supporting its partners at this crucial point in the fight against COVID-19. (You can learn more about BOL to the left.) By supporting me on this hike, your tax-deductible donation 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, Nicaragua 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.
