Dialysis provider DaVita has raised $1 million for The Kidney TRUST with its seventh annual Tour DaVita. The tour, held in South Carolina this year, is a three-day, 220-mile bike ride to raise awareness and funds for the fight against kidney disease. The Kidney TRUST, is an independent nonprofit organization that seeks to reduce the progression of chronic kidney disease through no-cost, rapid screenings in non-medical settings.
“The funds from this year’s Tour DaVita will go a long way in supporting our mission,” said Gloria Upchurch, program manager of The Kidney TRUST.
“We will be able to continue helping communities around the country better understand their kidney health, including kidney disease risk factors.”
More than 250 Tour DaVita participants had their kidneys screened at no cost by The Kidney TRUST during this year’s event.
