As a nationwide leading provider for kidney care services, DaVita is passionate about promoting kidney care awareness. More than 31 million people are affected by chronic kidney disease, and DaVita is dedicated to making sure more people get tested, stay educated, and receive treatment.
To continue awareness DaVita is planning an event unlike the health fairs most people would think of. The cause is worthy and the event is sure to entertain.
Beginning at 8 a.m. The Kidney Trust will be providing free kidney disease screenings to any registered participant. The event will include a Kidney Health Expo, games at the kid zone, and refreshments throughout the day. There will also be a special performance by the DaVita Blues All Stars Band.
The Kidney Run/Walk will follow the opening ceremony that begins at 10 a.m. Participants can register and find more information online at www.davitakidneyrock.org. Take the time to learn about kidney disease, support a good cause, and have fun at the DaVita Kidney Rock event!
