DaVita Events Will Benefit the TRUST in 2008

Burlingame, CA, May 28, 2022 — The Kidney TRUST is delighted that the 2008 DaVita KAT Walks Across America™ will once again benefit TRUST programs. DaVita, Inc, one of the largest dialysis providers in the United States, has designed these events to raise awareness and funds for public education and screening for chronic kidney disease (CKD).

This year the DaVita KAT Walks will take place in 20 locations in 16 states, kicking off on June 29th in Virginia Beach, Virginia and wrapping up in Orlando, Florida on December 7th. Last year’s KAT Walks attracted over 4,000 walkers, 1,500 volunteers and raised more than $500,000 for the TRUST.

The second annual Tour DaVita will take place September 15–18, 2008 in Wisconsin, and the TRUST is honored to be the recipient of funds raised by the 300 participating cyclists. Last year 211 cyclists rode 230 miles and raised over $600,000 for kidney awareness. For more information, visit
