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.



Funding the care. Funding the cure.

For 2021, 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.

Won’t you please add your donation now?

Over the past four years, we’ve raised over $400,000 and grown our Facebook fan base to almost 18,000 followers.

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

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

Use #r2endalz on Facebook and Instagram. Tell your friends. And donate whatever you can afford. Every dollar is matched. Every penny goes to the cause.

Let’s make Racing to End Alzheimer’s an even bigger success again this year!


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 racing team — BimmerWorld — is back this year, pairing Nick with driver/owner James Clay who captured the drivers’ championship in TC America last year. Backed up by a seasoned and unflappable crew, and supported by Legistics and Optima, our BMW M4 GT4 is a strong contender in this year’s SRO GT4 America series. Follow the team’s exploits here.
