Danny King (above, right, with Davis Phinney), a member of the Davis Phinney Foundation Leadership Circle, reflected on the time he met Davis 15 years ago and said, “despite facing adversity of a condition that basically took away much of what he dedicated his life to, his reaction was to try to help others deal with the same condition. I have never seen Davis when he wasn’t positive and inspiring.”
This in turn inspired Danny to become a strong supporter of the Foundation, which he has now been for more than 15 years. He says, “I’ll always support inspiration and helping others deal with — quoting Shakespeare — ‘the 1,000 natural shocks that flesh is heir to.’”
