A Day Dedicated to Helping Others

New friends join in for a great causeRich London was proud to lend a hand at Davis Phinney’s hugely successful Victory Summit in Charlotte, NC on June 5, 2010. The Davis Phinney Foundation partnered with the Parkinson Association of the Carolinas and other groups to involve and educate 400 PWP (people with Parkinsons) and their caregivers in a day long symposium of education, movement and hope.

Rich was the local volunteer coordinator representing the Parkinson Association of the Carolinas.

The Davis Phinney Foundation is dedicated to providing a higher quality of life to PWP as well as helping to fund research into a cure for Parkinson’s disease.

Pictured with Rich is Davis Phinney who is a former Olympic bronze medal winner, Tour de France bicyclist and fellow person with Parkinsons.

  1. I was very impressed with the turnout and the information. Best quote from Phinney after I told him he looked like he was fit enough to ride the Tour de France. “it’s that Parkinson’s diet” he claimed.
