Pactimo Announces Davis Phinney Foundation as May 10in10 Campaign Selection

GREENWOOD VILLAGE, CO May 1, 2013 – Pactimo, a Denver based provider of premium cycling and triathlon apparel, is excited to announce the Davis Phinney Foundation as their May 10in10 campaign selection.  The 10in10 campaign was designed with the goal of benefitting ten non-profit organizations in 2013.  The program commemorates Pactimo’s tenth year of operations, as well as its core mission of having a positive impact on society.

“We are excited to partner with this great foundation and bring additional attention to Parkinson’s Disease.  This foundation hits home for us since Davis Phinney is a fellow cyclist in the industry and many of us were cheering him on during his career,” said Pactimo CEO, Frank Kim. “The 10in10 campaign has been successful in generating donations and driving additional exposure to these great causes.  We are looking forward to the added assistance we can bring to our remaining 2013 charity selections.”

Since 2004, the Davis Phinney Foundation has invested more than $3.8 million in initiatives to support, inform and inspire people living with Parkinson’s to live well today.  Over $1.2 million in research funding has been invested in innovative, early-phase studies that focus on exercise, speech, movement and other factors that affect quality of life.  Tens of thousands of people living with this disease have been directly touched by one of their programs or through the Davis Phinney Foundation’s inspirational message: it is possible to live well with Parkinson’s today.  More than 60 international, national and local foundations, movement disorder centers and hospitals have provided support, information and partnerships to ensure that their programming reaches those who can benefit most. “We are so pleased to have this opportunity to create more awareness for our Foundation and Parkinson’s disease. Pactimo has come up with a great-looking jersey our supporters will be proud to wear. We’re excited about reaching new audiences through Pactimo’s 10in10 campaign,” said Davis Phinney Foundation Marketing Director, Christa Lassen-Vogel.
