a call to action

The 2020 racing season paused. But Alzheimer’s did not. We made a commitment to Honor our Champions. So we hit the open road on a 4,000 mile cross-country tour to raise more awareness. Now we’re getting back on the track. Join us in Funding the Care + Funding the Cure by donating now.

on the road again

In June, we Honored our Champions on a 4,000-mile cross-country drive from Daytona International Raceway in Florida to WeatherTech/Laguna Seca in Monterey, California.

Along the way our BMW M4, covered in the names of honorees who’ve suffered from Alzheimer’s or dementia, delivered checks to our beneficiaries: Nantz National Alzheimer Center at Houston Methodist Hospital and UCLA’s Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care program.

As of July, we’re racing again! And 100% of every donation goes to our charity partners. All marketing and administrative costs are underwritten by Legistics.

For a donation of $250, the name and hometown of the person you want to honor — a current sufferer or someone you’d like to remember — will join us for the rest of the racing season, funding the care and funding the cure.

about alzheimer's

Alzheimer’s afflicts 5.7 million Americans and over 50 million people worldwide, with tragic consequences for the individuals, families and societies grappling with its devastating effects.

A degenerative brain disease, Alzheimer’s currently has no cure. However, enormous progress is being made toward understanding the nature and mechanisms of the disease; formulating new treatments and diagnostics; and providing effective and compassionate support for overwhelmed caregivers. Every day brings new hope.

These promising new developments deserve our urgent, full-throttle help. The non-profit Racing to End Alzheimer’s Foundation is dedicated to raising awareness and funds for the cutting edge research, treatment and support services that will end the scourge of Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia once and for all.

For 2020, our donations will be split among three deserving organizations. The Nantz National Alzheimer Center at Houston Methodist is vigorously pursuing cutting-edge research aimed at delaying the progression of the disease or stopping its course. UCLA Alzheimer’s & Dementia Care Program provides much-needed care for families of dementia sufferers. Baycrest Foundation provides care, education and innovation, and is one of the most research-intensive hospitals in Canada. Every penny we raise goes to a worthy charity partner.

Won’t you please add your donation now?

During our first year — in just 6 weeks — we welcomed almost 5,000 fans to our Racing to End Alzheimer’s page on Facebook. We now have almost 15,000. If you’re one of them, we’re truly grateful to you for helping spread the word and keeping this cause vibrant.

about the race team

Nick Galante was half of the team that won the championship in 2016, and he did it again in 2018. That winning BMW racing team is back this year, pairing Nick with 2017 CTSC GS champion, Dillon Machavern. Backed up by a seasoned and unflappable BimmerWorld crew, and supported by Legistics, the No. 80 BMW is a strong contender in this year’s IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge.
