Our Story

What do you do when someone you love is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s?

If you’re our founder, Phil Frengs, you decide to make a difference in the fight against this insidious disease that affects 6 million Americans and 50 million people worldwide.

“When my wife Mimi was diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s, I was devastated — and felt so alone. I started Racing to End Alzheimer’s as a way to channel my emotions into something that might help others who were having similar experiences.”

Phil is a racing buff. His company, Legistics, has sponsored race cars for a decade. So, he wondered:

“What if we replaced the big sponsor logos on our car with the names of people who are facing dementia or who have suffered from this disease? Wouldn’t families and friends contribute $250 to honor someone they love in such a unique and visible way?

“And wouldn’t they be happy, even relieved, to make a contribution toward a cure? Toward caring for families who are on this same difficult journey? Especially if I’d cover all expenses and match every donation, dollar for dollar?”

For hundreds of donors since we started in 2017, the answer has been a resounding “Yes.”

And “Yes” is what we hope you’ll say to honoring your own special Champion by joining us in the fight of our lives at Racing to End Alzheimer’s.

Beneficiaries

Funding the care. Funding the cure.

For 2022, our donations will be split among a few deserving organizations. Our primary beneficiaries are:

  • 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.
  • From time to time we also do events that benefit other organizations, which are identified separately

100% of the money we raise is matched by Legistics and goes to our worthy charity partners. Legistics covers all marketing and administrative costs as well. In total, we’ve raised over $500,000 since we started.

Won’t you please add your donation now?

Over the past five years, we’ve raised over $500,000 and grown our Facebook fan base to over 20,000 followers.

If you’re one of them, we’re truly grateful to you for helping to spread the word and keeping this cause vibrant.

Now we’re asking you to get back into action as we celebrate our sixth season!
