a moving tribute

Our new #81 BMW 328i is a blazing fast racecar driven by fearless competitors and supported by a great BimmerWorld team.

On September 8, 2018, the national media, spectators, supporters and fans watching the IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca will experience this Legistics/Veristor/YouRulz car in all its glory — emblazoned with the names of our donors’ loved ones affected by Alzheimer’s disease.

Plus, every donation is quadrupled! $250 becomes $1000, all of which goes to our charity partners. Any marketing and administrative costs are underwritten by Legistics.

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 once and for all.

funding the cure.

Donations from the first Racing to End Alzheimers event were split between two 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 Cognitive Health Clinic provides much-needed care for families of Alzheimer’s sufferers. And every penny we raise goes to a worthy charity partner.

Won’t you please add your loved one’s name at Laguna Seca on September 8, 2018?

Last year, in just 6 weeks, we got almost 5,000 fans on our Racing to End Alzheimer’s page on Facebook. If you’re one of them, we’re enormously grateful to you for helping to spread the word and keep this cause alive.

Now we need you to get back into the action. Post on Facebook and Instagram. Tell your friends. Donate.

about the race team

Nick Galante was half of the team that won the championship in 2016 and nearly did it again in 2017, coming in third for the season. With a new car and his new driving partner Devin Jones, our team started the year with a first-place win at Daytona Beach, and a podium finish at Mid-Ohio! Backed up by a seasoned and unflappable crew, the #81 Legistics/Veristor/YouRulz BimmerWorld BMW is the car to beat in this year’s IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge.
