Racing to End Alzheimer’s Fundraiser

Join the Charity Race to End Alzheimer’s at K1 Speed Toronto! 

Be a racer with a cause this month at K1 Speed Toronto when we host the Race to End Alzheimer’s Charity Go Kart race on Saturday, September 14 from 12:00pm to 5:00pm!

All funds we raise during the event will be donated to the Baycrest Foundation to aid their tremendous Alzheimer’s research and treatment efforts.  And that’s not all – every dollar raised will be matched by the terrific sponsors who have jumped on board, doubling the total amount! 

Information about this Charity Event in Toronto

Starting at 12pm, racers who are 4’10 or taller are encouraged to set the fastest lap time they can around the indoor Toronto track. The drivers that set the 10 fastest laps of the day will qualify for the R2endALZ Race at 5:00pm. We’re expecting a great turnout for this, so be sure to arrive early and set that fast lap time!

The main race will be a 12-lap grand finale race for glory. The cost to participate in the main event is only $30 (a donation in itself), and participants will compete for thousands of dollars’ worth of prizes!

The Prizes

Every qualifier will receive some amazing swag from K1 Speed and the sponsors of the event, so no competitor will leave empty handed. The top three finishers will receive prize packs worth hundreds of dollars each:
