R2ENDALZ: Tour for the Cure

For Racing to End Alzheimer’s, the 2020 racing season started off with the most successful fundraising to date; 75 names on their car for the first race. Then covid-19 hit and the season ground to halt. While waiting for the season to restart, they wondered: what could be done to continue to draw attention to this cause?

They had an idea.

On the Road Again: The Ultimate Tour for the Cure is a 3,800-mile cross-country drive from Daytona International Raceway in Florida to WeatherTech Raceway in Laguna Seca. R2ENDALZ founder Phil Frengs is driving a street-legal BMW M4 with racing livery across America.

Along the way he will hand-deliver checks to beneficiaries such as the Nantz National Alzheimer Center and UCLA’s Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care program. Like the No. 80 race car, this M4 is covered with the names and hometowns those being honoured by their friends and family.

In 2019 Demaras Racing teamed up with R2ENDALZ to help raise funds for Alzheimer’s research. In 2020 the IMSA series that R2ENDALZ competes in will not be coming to Mosport, and the “Tour for the Cure” will miss Toronto by a thousand miles, but the Demaras family will follow Phil Frengs’ journey on FB and IG. social media.:
