Today, 50 million people around the world have dementia. Unless a cure is found, one in three people born today will get dementia in their lifetime. A new person develops dementia every three seconds. This crisis cannot continue.
Founded by Formula 1 racing legend Sir Jackie Stewart, Race Against Dementia is driven to raise money to fund breakthrough and innovative dementia research.
A new pace and thinking in the search for prevention or treatment of the diseases that cause dementia.
Sir Jackie is joined by an illustrious group of friends as they share memories and stories from their past.

All about dementia
Lady Helen and Sir Jackie have been married for 56 years, but Helen is now in a battle with dementia. Since her diagnosis with frontotemporal dementia, Helen's short-term memory is failing, and the disease is taking hold of her mind and body.
Helen was Jackie’s stopwatch: the love of his life and a razor-sharp mind that timed his laps to the millisecond. The woman who once kept Jackie on the top is now confronted by a disorder currently with no cure.
Her battle has inspired Sir Jackie to create Race Against Dementia.
