Powering toward the finish line!

Racing to End Alzheimer’s is barreling along toward the midnight September 3 checkered flag, when contributions have to be in to secure a place on our championship #17 Porsche Cayman. With the help of golfer Rickie Fowler who co-sponsors the car, many members of the UCLA women’s golf team, University of Washington Women’s Golf, and our thousands of supporters on Facebook, we can take a major step toward ending Alzheimer’s disease.

5.5 million Americans are affected by Alzheimer’s. Worldwide, it hits 47 million. Add families to that number and it impacts some 200 million people. That’s a lot of misery, uncertainty, pain and loss. It needs to stop.

Luckily, we’re closing in on a solution. But progress is directly related to funding, and anything we can do to accelerate the end of Alzheimer’s and dementia is worth doing.

So if this moves you to act, please go to r2endalz.org and donate.

If you’d like to honor a loved one in a brand new way, great! When we remove all the corporate logos and replace them with the names of our donors’ grandparents, parents and friends, for $250 you can add someone you care about — or care for.

If you just want to help, even a small donation is welcome. And all the money we raise goes straight to research and family support. Legistics, our wonderful client, is absorbing all the marketing and execution costs for this campaign.

Watch on Fox Sports FS1 when our car, covered in names, competes in the IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca on September 23.

Please share this. And check out the ways you can make a difference at r2endalz.org. Thanks!
