What is a Champion?

In racing, it’s someone who overcomes all obstacles to reach the winner’s podium. But in life, it’s someone who, with love and encouragement, champions us through adversity, helping us overcome our obstacles and become our best.

The Racing to End Alzheimer’s Wall of Champions is a way to honor someone who made a difference in your life. When you add your loved one’s name to the wall, their story will be seen by people around the world. A fitting way to remember someone who championed you. And once a week, we will be featuring one of our honorees here on our website and as the public face of our community.

Edward Johnston from Bethesda, MD

“My father, Ted Johnston, taught us how to change a tire, tell a good joke badly, and love proudly. He could fix almost anything until computers came along and he taught us to do the same. He knew the benefits of a good walk or a good nap and firmly believed that everything was better with peanut butter. After years of coaching his children in soccer and attending their music programs, he loved watching his grandchildren’s games and activities. He found his greatest joy and pride in his family.”

The Racing to End Alzheimer’s Wall of Champions transcends the racing season. For a contribution of $25, you can honor your Champion and let others remember them more vividly. But the best part is your donation is matched by our Corporate Sponsor, Legistics so your $25 becomes $50, of which 100% goes towards funding the care and funding the cure for Alzheimer’s disease.
