A Message From Tessa Pals

I just went thorugh all of my photos, back to high school.  It turns out I don't own a single photo of me on a bike.  No surprise there, since bike-selfies are difficult.  That being said, I am hanging up my running shoes (temporarily) and taking on a new challenge with Tour DaVita.  (Joke's on Ally - she begged me not to do another half marathon and here I am signed up to bike 200 miles over three days!) :)

I am honored to be representing DaVita in this year's Tour, raising funds for the 501(c)(3), Bridge of Life.  This charity is focused on improving healthcare in underserved communities around the globe through kidney care, primary care, chronic disease prevention, and kids' camps.  (See left-hand panel for more details.) 

I recently served the Village (this is what we at DaVita call our company) as a Facility Administrator and experienced the day-to-day of a kidney care facility.  While we at DaVita are able to provide our patients with the best healthcare and outcomes, there are patients across the globe who we have yet to impact.  Through this ride, I hope to make a difference for the patients I cannot reach here in Chicago.  

Thank you very much for your support, whether monetary or moral. 

Much love,
Tessa
