Race Against Dementia (RAD) heads to Florida for the Formula 1 Miami Grand Prix 2023 on 5-7 May. You’ll find us in the Paddock and at the Paddock Club’s Global Partner Suite. We’re excited to connect with fans from around the world and spread awareness about the global fight against dementia.
RAD Mayo Clinic Fellow, Dr Ellen Dicks, will join us at the Miami International Autodrome for the race weekend, as part of our ongoing charity partnership with F1. A valued member of our world-class research team, Ellen is exploring age-related brain diseases using advanced brain imaging techniques and pathology. She’s researching how brain connections – and their breakdown – affect other disease processes, particularly in Alzheimer’s disease.
“Dementia research is just as precise and just as relentless”
“The pace of change in Formula 1 is incredible. The cars are a platform that evolve markedly from the first race to the last. Disruptive design concepts honed via incremental change, eking out race pace as the season unfolds. Dementia research is just as precise and just as relentless.” – Dr Ellen Dicks
Please come and visit us in the Paddock or Paddock Club’s Global Partners Suite, where Ellen and the Race Against Dementia team will explain how we’re echoing Formula 1’s resilience, innovation and teamwork to find a treatment and cure for dementia – faster.
Pick up a limited edition postcard depicting Sir Jackie Stewart’s second US GP race win at Watkins Glen in 1972, too. We’re accepting donations to our F1 Friends of Race Against Dementia Fund – a tax-efficient way for US donors to support our charity through CAF America.
Join us in the race against dementia. Let’s win it together.
