Lime Rock Park's 2020 Official Charity:
Alzheimer’s Association, Connecticut chapter

Lime Rock Park is honored to have the Alzheimer’s Association, Connecticut chapter as its 2020 Official Charity. In addition to fundraising for the organization throughout the year, Lime Rock will host the Northwestern Connecticut Walk to End Alzheimer’s on Sunday, Oct. 4, 2020. 
 

There are 5.8 million people in the United States living with Alzheimer’s, 78 thousand of them in Connecticut. The Alzheimer’s Association Connecticut chapter supports families by providing services including education classes for those with dementia, caregivers and professionals, support groups for caregivers and people with dementia, a 24/7 helpline 1-800-272-3900, robust advocacy on the state and federal level and by funding critical research to find new treatments or a cure. The association is the most impactful non-profit funder of research in the world, funding 500 projects in 27 countries to the tune of $167 million dollars.

 

Lime Rock Park President Skip Barber noted, “Through our fundraising efforts this year, we hope to have an impact on the lives of all of those who have the disease and their caregivers.” Robin Sharp, Executive Director of the Alzheimer’s Association Connecticut chapter added, “Partnering with Lime Rock Park and holding events on site throughout the year will help us reach even more people, and let them know where they can turn if and when they get a diagnosis of dementia.”

On Oct. 4, 2020, hundreds of walkers will converge on the 1.5-mile Lime Rock Park track to take part in the Northwestern Connecticut Walk to End Alzheimer’s. The event is the Alzheimer’s Association’s signature fundraiser, and is one of seven walks held across Connecticut every year. It’s an opportunity for families with loved ones with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia to see they are not alone, and come together for a common cause - to end Alzheimer’s.

Hot Lap Fundraisers

Join us at Lime Rock Park during the four of the major racing events in 2020 and take an exciting Hot Lap To End Alzheimer's. Hot Laps around the track are given in a sports car driven by a professional driver. Hot lap sessions are available on Race Days, typically during the lunch breaks, and can be purchased through a donation to the Alzheimer's Association at the Info Tent.

A donation of $100 or more guarantees the participant a hot lap. Or, spectators may purchase a $5 ticket at the Info Tent where a select number of names will be drawn. The Hot Lap drawing typically takes place around 30 minutes prior to the Hot Lap session. Details are available at the Info Tent.

Hot Lap participants must be 18 years of age or older, wear long pants and closed toe shoes. A helmet will be provided.
