Tour DaVita Hits the Road

September 15, 2021 — The second annual Tour DaVita will hit the road today in New London, Wisconsin and will end later this week in the small town of Agoma.  Over 230 DaVita employees will ride their bikes more than 240 miles in four days to fight chronic kidney disease and raise funds for The Kidney TRUST.  DaVita is a leading provider of kidney care services in the U.S.

DaVita CEO Kent Thiry, a native of Wisconsin who will be participating in the ride, said, ““This is one of the most important events of the year for our community.  It is our way to express our dedication and commitment to our patients through continued education and awareness.  Our teammates have worked incredibly hard both training and fundraising for this cause, and I’m honored to be a part of it with them.”

The Kidney TRUST’s President Barbara Lawson commented, “We’re so pleased that DaVita has named the TRUST as the beneficiary of this amazing event.  Money raised by these riders is helping us conduct CKD rapid-screening events around the country — raising awareness about kidney disease and providing individuals with the information they need to fight it.”
