The foundation was founded by Olympic cyclist Davis Phinney to help people with Parkinson’s, focusing on providing programs, early-stage research, and resources to help people living with Parkinson’s improve their quality of life.
“By learning all I can and listening to our audience, my hope is to target and reach new cohorts of people affected by or who want to learn more about Parkinson’s,” Fulford said in a written statement.
