DENVER, Sept. 18 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- DaVita Inc. (NYSE: DVA), a leading provider of kidney care services for those diagnosed with chronic kidney disease (CKD), will join nearly 400 teammates (employees), family members and friends from around the country in Greenville, Michigan, this weekend to kick off the third annual Tour DaVita(TM) - a three-day, 250-mile bike ride to raise awareness and funds for the fight against kidney disease.

A silent epidemic, CKD affects approximately 26 million American adults and 90 percent are unaware they are suffering from it. The chance that an American adult has CKD is almost as high as an American woman's risk of getting breast cancer.

To participate in Tour DaVita, riders raised a minimum of $750 in donations each and paid their own travel expenses. Their individual fundraising combined with donations from DaVita(R) and other corporate sponsorship is expected to contribute more than $600,000 dollars - enough to screen nearly 10,000 people for kidney disease. The proceeds of Tour DaVita will be donated to The Kidney TRUST(TM), a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization working to prevent kidney disease through public education and awareness across the United States.

By the end of the 2009 ride, nearly 800 DaVita teammates, physicians, family members and friends will have participated in the three annual Tour DaVita events - riding approximately 600,000 miles collectively and raising more than $1,600,000.
