“Memories”

Memories: Support our fight to protect yours

Many millions across the world are robbed of their memories by dementia. Race Against Dementia is working to change that.

In this Memories series, recorded during the lockdown of 2020, our founder Sir Jackie Stewart discusses memories of a remarkable life in motorsport, business and beyond.

Sir Jackie is joined by an illustrious group of friends, from royalty to international stars of music and entertainment, to other sporting legends.

“The Memories series of conversations is intended to show the value of shared remembrances and recollections to human health and well-being and help raise further awareness of Race Against Dementia, and further donations so we can grow our programme of vital research fellowships.” Sir Jackie Stewart

We hope you enjoy watching.

“I have been fortunate to have a wonderful career and my wife Helen was by my side through it all. We should have been able to share those memories forever but dementia steals that away. Without urgent progress, one in three people born today, will go on to suffer dementia and that is unacceptable. I passionately believe that the way Formula One uses problem-solving and innovative thinking to achieve remarkable developments at speed can help scientists to create a real and much-needed breakthrough in dementia research.

When the world is, rightly, focussed on combatting the dreadful COVID-19 pandemic, it is vitally important that the fight against dementia is not allowed to diminish in importance.  My ‘MEMORIES’ series of conversations is intended to show the value of shared remembrances and recollections to human health and well-being and help raise further donations so we can grow our programme of vital research fellowships.

I am enormously grateful to all those who have given up their time to speak so openly in these conversations. I hope everyone can find some comfort and enjoyment in them during these difficult times.”
