Our Inspiration

About the foundation

The Blaneys are no strangers to brain health issues. Alzheimer’s Disease was forever burned into the Blaney’s minds’ after losing family patriarch, Lou Blaney, to the disease. While Lou was a legendary racecar driver, he was most importantly a devoted family man deeply loved and respected by his family. Proceeding his death from Alzheimer’s, the Blaney’s have become passionate about helping fight the awful disease that affects an estimated 6.7 million people in the United States and 50 million people worldwide.
