On August 6th DaVita is hosting  DaVita Kidney Rock, a 5K run/walk to raise kidney disease awareness and raise

money for the Bridge of Life Medical Missions. If you live in or around Denver, Colorado take advantage of this opportunity to mingle with DaVita teammates, invite your family and friends for a free kidney screening, and join in the fun.

One in every 6 people has chronic kidney disease and most are unaware. Early detection and treatment can delay or prevent kidney failure. As noted in Kidney Diet Tips blogposts, earlier stages of chronic kidney disease managed with diet and blood pressure and glucose control may help slow the progression. Find out the risk factors and learn more about kidney disease from the DaVita Kidney Rock website or call 1-866-859-WALK (9255).

If you are interested in kidney disease screening in your area or supporting The Kidney Trust please visit the website or call for more information.
