Last Saturday marked the launch of Racing to End Alzheimer’s, a new foundation designed to help fund research into this debilitating disease, as well as to support programs for families who are dealing with it.
The campaign debuted with redesigned graphics for this season installed on the Legistics-sponsored #17 Porsche Cayman. The new livery highlights Racing to End Alzheimer’s and the brand new website at r2endalz.org. Celebrity golfer and co-sponsor Rickie Fowler will be helping to promote the cause.
But the new summer look only lasts until the fall. At Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca on September 23, 2017, the sponsor logos will be stripped from the car and it will be covered in matte black. For $250, donors can honor a loved one affected by Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia, with their name and hometown emblazoned on the Porsche as it competes in the IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge.
