Pactimo celebrates 10 years with 10 charities

Custom clothing maker supports Phinney Foundation this month

Pactimo is celebrating its tenth year as a Colorado-based custom clothing company by supporting 10 charities in 2013. This month, Pactimo is raising money for  the Davis Phinney Foundation.

Created by the former pro racer in 2004, the Davis Phinney Foundation has invested a claimed $3.8 million in helping people with Parkinson’s, which Phinney himself has. More than $1.2 million has been given in research funding, according to the foundation.

Pactimo is raising money with a matching grant program to encourage cash donations, and with commemorative cycling jerseys and technical T-shirts.

Founded by a former minister, Pactimo donated more than $100,000 in cash to charities over its ten years.

Pactimo's partner charity in March was the Challenged Athletes Foundation, and Mount Saint Vincent Home received support in April.
