Lime Rock Park Selects The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research & Team Fox as the 2018 Official 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," said Lime Rock Park President Skip Barber. "Through our fundraising efforts this year, we hope to have an impact on the lives of all of those who have the disease, including Sam."

According to officials with the foundation, important advancements are being made that are already changing the lives of so many who have Parkinson’s disease.
As part of Lime Rock’s year-long fundraising efforts, all proceeds from the Sunday Royals Car Show, held on May 27 in conjunction with the Royals Garage of Torrington, Conn., have been donated to Team Fox. Additional fundraising efforts will be announced as the 2018 season continues.
