“Racing For ALS is about more than just fast cars-It’s about speeding to a cure for ALS!”
- David Lloyd, Jr., co-founder of Racing for ALS
David Quote
Like ALS TDI, Racing for ALS was inspired by the love of brothers. Following David Lloyd's ALS diagnosis in 2017, he and his brother Scott decided to live life to the fullest and began Racing for ALS. Sadly, we lost David in July of 2023, but his legacy will live on through Racing for ALS.
Racing for ALS has raised a total of $1,235,652.57 for ALS and directly donated $687,776.62 to support research at ALS TDI!
Total dollar amounts listed above are as of December 2022.

Our Mission
A portion of funds from Racing for ALS driving events benefit the ALS Therapy Development Institute (ALS TDI). ALS TDI is the world's most comprehensive drug discovery lab dedicated solely to ALS. As one of the world's only nonprofit biotech companies, we only answer to our supporters, the ALS community. Our research is funded by the ALS community, a global network of supporters whose lives have been affected by this disease, and who are unified to end ALS.
As the Drug Discovery Engine for ALS, they aim to discover new ALS drugs and work to advance them to human trials – until there are treatments for everyone with ALS.
About ALS
About ALS
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Motor Neuron Disease (MND), Lou Gehrig's Disease, and Charcot's disease, is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that attacks motor neurons in the brain and spinal cord. This results in the wasting away of muscle, loss of movement and eventual paralysis. There are an estimated 30,000 people living with ALS in the United States at any given time. Every 90 minutes, someone is diagnosed with ALS.
