Davis Phinney Foundation

Raise money for Davis Phinney Foundation


While it’s critical to find a cure for Parkinson’s, we feel strongly that people with Parkinson's also need information in order to take action and live well today.

To support our mission, we provide FREE programs including: educational events, tools and informational materials.



As an Olympic Bronze medalist and Tour de France stage winner, Davis Phinney has celebrated the most victories of any cyclist in American history. From the late 1970′s until his retirement from professional cycling in 1993, Davis achieved more wins – 328 victories in all – than any other US Cyclist.

In 2000, after years of feeling not quite right, and an almost endless round of tests, Davis was diagnosed with Young-onset Parkinson’s disease (YOPD). Finally, the years of battling constant fatigue, the mental fogginess, the muscle cramping and bouts of sudden numbing weakness had a name.

Realizing that there are ways to improve the quality of his day to day living, Davis started the Davis Phinney Foundation as a way to promote and fund innovative research that demonstrates the effects and importance of exercise, speech and other elements that are critical to quality of life.

Today, Davis lives in Boulder, Colorado with his wife and fellow Olympian, Connie Carpenter-Phinney, and their children Taylor and Kelsey. Davis continues to celebrate the daily victories in his life and inspires others with his message of optimism and encouragement to help people with Parkinson's live well today.
