Programs

EL SEGUNDO, Calif., Sept. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Currently more than 26 million Americans are affected by chronic kidney disease (CKD). Among them, nine in ten do not realize it and are not aware of the potential consequences. DaVita Inc., a leading provider of kidney care services in the United States, is taking action to help combat this silent killer by creating much needed awareness and raising contributions. The fundraising, bike ride event, called Tour DaVita(TM), aims to increase awareness of chronic kidney disease as its participants cycle through several cities across the state of Wis. The ride will kick-off on September 15th in New London, Wis., and will cross the finish line four days later in the town of Algoma. Its goal is to raise funds in order to fight CKD. More than 230 DaVita(R) teammates (employees) will hop on their bikes and ride approximately 240 miles over the course of the four day tour. Funds raised by the bike ride will benefit The Kidney TRUST(TM), a non-profit organization aimed at prevention and awareness of CKD.
