About ‘Drive Toward a Cure Days’ Supporting April’s Parkinson’s Awareness Month:
With the month of April globally recognized as ‘Parkinson’s Awareness Month,’ car clubs and organizations throughout the nation are stepping up to support Drive Toward a Cure creating their own grassroots events, with registration for most provided directly through the Drive Toward a Cure website.

All marques are welcome, convertibles are welcome, and there is no helmet requirement. Participants drive their own car in a lead-follow format for over 4 laps at a time on the 3.2-mile road course above highway speeds, with a maximum of five cars per touring group. Walk-ins are welcome, however, registration is recommended via visiting: http://www.drivetowardacure.org/drive-toward-a-cure-track-day-2018/ .

About Drive Toward a Cure:
The Drive Toward a Cure program pursues an alternative to the numerous ‘for profit’ rally driving programs through the creation of events that team cars and camaraderie to raise funds in support of the challenges of Parkinson’s Disease, benefiting research and patient care. Drive Toward a Cure is a 501 (c ) (3) non-profit, with events that are carefully designed to provide a premium experience while raising much-needed funds to continue the search for a Parkinson’s cure, through beneficiaries The Michael J. Fox Foundation and The Parkinson’s Institute and Clinical Center. As the Drive Toward a Cure program grows within the automotive community, all levels of car devotees are encouraged to join through participation and/or donation.
