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.

ABOUT DAVITA VILLAGE TRUST

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 has applied for federal tax exemption as a 501(c)(3) public charity; when this designation is granted, the full amount of your contribution will be deductible for federal income tax purposes.

A Message From Moira Donovan
Hello!

I want to let you know that I am participating in Tour DaVita this September to help raise awareness of kidney disease. Through public education and testing programs, it’s possible to prevent or delay the progression of chronic kidney disease (CKD) to kidney failure and the need for dialysis.  I need your support and encouragement!

Our beneficiary for 2013 is The Kidney TRUST™, whose free, rapid-screening program has reached more than 35,000 people since it was launched in 2007. This screening identifies people who have signs of kidney impairment. This is crucial, because early stages of kidney disease often have mild symptoms which often go unnoticed.  It’s estimated that 90% of those with CKD don’t even know they have it!

Screening participants learn their screening results on site, and those showing impairment benefit from a personal education session to explain their results and any risk factors. They also receive additional materials to help them learn more, and are encouraged to seek medical follow-up as appropriate. The Kidney TRUST is the only organization in America to offer free, rapid screening for kidney health.

I am among many people across the country riding in the event and raising funds for The Kidney TRUST. I’m hoping you will be a part of my support team. Any amount you can give will make a difference.

What can you do?
