Averitt Express graciously provided the hospitality for our 2017 VOLS for Kidneys Golf Classic held at Cherokee Country Club, in Knoxville, Tennessee. The event hosts former University of Tennessee athletes from a variety of sports, and the chance for participants to mingle and play golf with well-known Vols for Life (VFLs).

The East Tennessee Kidney Foundation is very appreciative of Averitt’s participation in the 2017 tournament. The event was very well attended and a great success for foundation. Money raised at this event goes towards patient programs and increasing the impact of our work in the community. All money raised stays here in East Tennessee and assists low-income dialysis patients and those needing a kidney transplant with necessary medical expenses relating to their kidney, and overall, health.

Averitt’s hospitality and generosity has allowed the ETKF to help more kidney patients whom are struggling financially in our community. Although ETKF serves over 1900 patients every year, there are still people on a waiting list for dialysis transportation assistance. The success of this tournament has allowed ETKF to make a larger impact in the community by providing much-needed services to many patients whom were on the waiting list.
