Thank you to the Backroads employees who collected donated towels from the DaVita riders during the 5th annual ride (this year throughout NY, MA and CT). A 240 mile ride to celebrate the work the employees of DaVita provide and raising funds (over $700,000) for Kidney Awareness.
Backroads supports 400+ riders for the Tour DaVita, from support vans to camp set up and breakdown, and along the way meeting amazing people with captivating stories. Two of the riders this year were also patients and at times had to leave for dialysis. It was my honor to be on team Light Blue this year and what a wonderful group of riders. Their early morning smiles and energy for the ride was invigorating....
Thank you to Backroads for collecting these great towels and to DaVita riders for donating them, we collected well over 25 - this will make at least 5 quilts...the follow up pictures of the quilts that come from this and the children you help will be coming soon. Thank you again!
These quilts are currently in production and will sent on the up coming trip scheduled for Dec. 2011 into rural village in Ecuador.
