Carolina Nephrology, PA, in partnership with DaVita®, has announced that the 7th annual Tour DaVita® will take place in the Upstate from September 15-18. Tour DaVita is a three-day, 220-mile bike ride that raises awareness for kidney disease nationwide.

Participants will begin at Cherokee Youth Sports Complex in Gaffney and will ride 60 miles to Chester the first day. On the second day, participants will choose either an 80- or 100-mile route from Chester to Fountain Inn and on the third day will ride 60 miles from Fountain Inn to Seneca.
