Proud Sponsor of NKF
Did you know that Fresenius Vascular Care (FVC) was the first national sponsor of the National Kidney Foundation Walks?
It’s true. Since 2000, we have been a national sponsor of the Kidney Walks and we proudly continue the tradition as a national team in 2016 and beyond. Our sponsorship reflects our company’s long-standing desire to support the NKF’s initiative to help prevent kidney disease, support dialysis patients, and lead the way in treatment and education.
Team FVC- Beyond Sponsorship
Nineteen years, twenty-six teams, eighteen states, and over $90,000 raised by just FVC teams alone.
These numbers describe the commitment that Team FVC (formerly Team American Access Care) has made by supporting the National Kidney Foundation walks across the US. However, our commitment to the Kidney Foundation’s mission goes far beyond numbers. We created our teams so that we could walk alongside, as well as in support of, our patients living with kidney disease and ESRD. This is evident year after year when employees from our outpatient vascular centers continue to sign up with enthusiasm and volunteer their time to walk, fundraise, and raise awareness for all things kidney disease related.
At the conclusion of 2016, we will have walked in Florida, New York, Texas, Louisiana, Maryland, Missouri, Indiana, New Jersey, Connecticut, California, Tennessee, Michigan, Colorado, Pennsylvania, Washington, DC, Virginia, and North Carolina. We’ve covered more than 100 miles and look forward to 100 more!
Come walk with us in 2017!
FVC is excited to be participating in the Kidney Walk again in 2017. To date, we have donated $476,500 in sponsorship and campaign dollars. And our employees are very excited, too! Throughout the years FVC employees have demonstrated their generosity with time and donations and we couldn’t be more honored to have them on our team.
We walk for many reasons, not just because it’s tradition. We walk for our patients suffering from kidney disease and their friends and families. We walk for our own friends and families. We walk to educate and raise awareness of kidney disease and other related conditions, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, kidney stones, and kidney failure. We walk to bring awareness on the importance of keeping your dialysis access healthy. We walk for you.
Join FVC at the 2017 National Kidney Foundation Walks!
