Support Lime Rock's 2018 Official Charity: The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research
We're excited to announce a number of opportunities were you can help us raise money for this important charity. As the world’s largest nonprofit funder of Parkinson’s research, The Fox Foundation has funded more than $800 million to speed a cure for the disease since 2000. In addition, Team Fox participants have raised more than $75 million for Parkinson’s research.
Each year, Lime Rock Park selects an official charity to support throughout the year and we’re pleased to select The Michael J. Fox Foundation and Team Fox as this year’s benefactor. This charity is especially near and dear to our hearts, as our good friend and former race car driver Sam Posey has Parkinson’s. Sam has been a champion, not only on the track, but as an advocate for finding a cure for Parkinson's. Sam will be joining us this year at the Historic Festival and we hope you'll come to and help us support this amazing charity.
Here's all the ways you can donate:

Silent Auction for Sunday in the Park Award Ceremony backdrop (Friday - Monday)
We're auctioning off a cool memorabilia item from Historic Festival as part of this fundraiser: the Sunday in the Park Award Ceremony Backdrop. Racing participants may join us in the Driver's Lounge on Friday, Saturday or Monday and all guests are welcome at the Awards Ceremony area on Sunday to place your bid for this Silent Auction. The starting bid is $300 and the final bid will be selected Monday evening. Bids do not include the cost of shipping, if necessary.
Racing Participant Pledge Drive (Saturday & Monday)
Drivers will be raising money for Team Fox through their personal fundraising website. Visit the Driver's Lounge to find out who is raising money and how you can contribute.
Park in the Paddock (Friday, Saturday & Monday)
Racing participants may park in the paddock with their modern street vehicle in your paddock space by purchasing a $500 charity parking pass. This is normally strictly prohibited and is a privilege we are happy to offer to raise money for this cause. Order in advance as parking passes are limited. Participants are still allowed to apply for a pass for their vintage vehicle to get in the paddock at no cost.
Concession Stands & Store Fundraisers (Friday - Monday)
While purchasing food at the concession stands or shopping at the Lime Rock Store, be sure to tell the clerk you would like to donate $1, $2 or $5 to Team Fox!
