Team DPF raised more than $1 million in 2019. These funds go to programming, events, education, quality of life research and resources for people affected by Parkinson’s.
“Anyone can raise funds as part of Team DPF,” says Lauren Kehn, Team DPF Manager and fundraising coach. “In addition to our official events, people raise funds through events that inspire them: runs, walks, treks and community events like dinners, corn hole tournaments, dance-a-thons and much more!”
Team DPF biked, ran and walked more than 500,000 miles together last year. Thanks to team members and our other generous donors, we were able to impact the lives of more than a half-a-million people in 2019 alone.
The Davis Phinney Foundation was founded by Olympic cyclist Davis Phinney in 2004 to help people with Parkinson’s live well today. The organization’s focus is to provide programs, early stage research, and resources that offer inspiration, information and tools that enable people living with Parkinson’s to take action that can immediately improve their quality of life. Parkinson’s is the No. 2 neurodegenerative disease – second to Alzheimer’s – and affects more than 1 million people in the United States. The Foundation’s work impacts hundreds of thousands of individuals and families each year.
Team DPF is the grassroots fundraising community that supports the Davis Phinney Foundation through participation in a wide range of athletic and community-based events. With a focus on fun, personal empowerment and fundraising for Parkinson’s, Team DPF welcomes all ages and abilities. With roots in cycling, Team DPF also extends to runners, climbers, swimmers, hikers, community events and more. Team DPF is sponsored by: Primal, AltRed, SCRATCH Labs, BOCO Gear, The Sufferfest, Baker Insurance and Boulder Neurological and Spine Associates.
