The Davis Phinney Foundation and Parkinson Wellness Project
Eleven years ago, Olympic medalist, Tour de France stage winner and sports broadcaster Davis Phinney set out to share what he’d discovered since learning he had Parkinson’s: that although he could not change the diagnosis, there was much he could do to change how he lived with the disease. The same determination, optimism and conviction that brought him success as a professional athlete applied naturally to his approach to Parkinson’s: set goals and strive for the best possible results. From these humble beginnings, the Davis Phinney Foundation was born, with a mission to help people with Parkinson's to live well today.
As the Foundation crosses the threshold into a second decade, its unique role in the Parkinson’s community remains to inspire, inform, and equip people with the tools to live fully and to thrive. In 2014 alone, the Davis Phinney Foundation positively impacted nearly 150,000 people in the US, Canada and beyond. But with 6.3 million people living worldwide with Parkinson’s, the Foundation is resolved to reach even more people with Parkinson’s with tools and resources that will empower them to live well today.
A new partnership between the Davis Phinney Foundation and the Parkinson Wellness Project (formerly ParkinGo Wellness Society), a registered Canadian charity, will bring great tools and resources to Canadians living with Parkinson’s disease. Your support through this partnership will allow more people in Canada to have access to tools and resources that empower them to live well today and everyday.
