Join Lime Rock Park In Finding A Cure For Parkinson's

Michael J. Fox Foundation Fundraising Continues

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 as this year’s benefactor.

As the world’s largest nonprofit funder of Parkinson’s research, the Foundation is dedicated to finding a cure for the more than 6 million people worldwide who live with Parkinson’s disease. Since inception in 2000, this organization has funded more than $800 million in high-impact research around the world.

Lime Rock President Skip Barber expressed his personal passion for supporting this cause. “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 the disease. Through our fundraising efforts this year, we hope to have an impact on the lives of all of those who urgently need a cure, including Sam.”

 
Fund raising is already underway. All proceeds from the Sunday Royals Car Show, held on May 27,2018, in conjunction with the Royals Garage of Torrington, Conn., have been donated to the Foundation’s grassroots fundraising community, Team Fox.
 
Lime Rock Park is also raising money via the Foundation's website. Anyone who would like to donate or participate in raising money can learn more by visiting www.limerock.com/officialcharity
 
Additional fundraising efforts to support the Foundation will be announced as the 2018 season continues.
