Thanks to you, last year’s fundraising effort was a huge success!

Together, we raised $43,500, 100% of which was donated equally to two deserving organizations.

To help fund a cure we gave $21,750 to the Nantz National Alzheimer Center in Houston, which is conducting cutting-edge research into solving the mysteries of this devastating disease.

To fund the care, we donated $21,750 to UCLA’s Cognitive Health Clinic, whose caregiving program has helped countless thousands of people give the best care to their loved ones

This year we’re excited to announce a new car, a new team, and a new goal of $75,000. Ambitious? Yes. But one we believe is well within reach with a sustained team effort. And teamwork is what this season is all about.

In auto racing, as in life, no one crosses the finish line alone. It takes a team: hardworking, dedicated, working together to move things forward.

Will you join our team?

On September 8, 2018, all eyes will be on the #81 BMW at the 2018 IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca in Monterey, California.

What spectators and a national broadcast audience will see is a car that has proudly replaced its corporate sponsor logos with the names and hometowns of individuals affected by Alzheimer’s disease.

For a donation of $250, your loved one — a current sufferer or someone you’d like to remember — will become a member of our team, racing with us on a world-renowned track that leads straight to a brighter future.

What makes this so impactful is that all contributions will be double-matched by our sponsors, which means that your donation of $250 instantly becomes $750 with every cent going directly to our health partners.

We’re all in this “race” together and with your support, we can continue to make a difference in Funding the Care and Funding the Cure.
