We often hear from people looking for more ways to get involved in our community. Here are some ways you can be proactive in supporting the Foundation this summer and help us help people live well with Parkinson’s today.
Support the Foundation while you’re doing your everyday shopping. If you shop on Amazon, AmazonSmile is a simple way for you to support the Davis Phinney Foundation. On your first visit to AmazonSmile, you’ll be asked to select a charity that will receive a donation every time you make an eligible purchase. Amazon saves that information so that every time you shop through smile.amazon.com, a portion of that sale will automatically be donated to the Foundation. Make sure you select the Davis Phinney Foundation as your charity for the upcoming Amazon Prime Days on June 21 and 22. For more super easy ways to support the Foundation, check out this blog post.
Join us for our June The Victory Summit® Virtual Event: YOPD. Learn from and interact with Parkinson’s experts and people living with YOPD on a wide range of topics that are unique to your situation. From the biology and etiology of YOPD to treatments, reinvention, exercise, and more, you’ll leave with a concrete plan on how to live well with Parkinson’s for many years to come.
Join us virtually for the second annual Every Victory Counts Challenge this July! Push yourself to get off the couch and get outside by setting a goal to move, walk, bike, or do any activity that helps you stay active. A bonus of joining the EVCC is that you will have access to our exclusive race village network on Facebook. Register for the 2021 Every Victory Counts Challenge here.
