According to the latest statistics from the Alzheimer’s Association, the disease is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States, and the fifth-leading cause of death for those over age 65. Currently, some 5.2 million Americans live with the disease, which robs sufferers of both short and long-term memory, leaving them unable to recall past events or even recognize family and friends. Brock Yates, known as the founder of the Cannon Ball Baker Sea-to-Shining-Sea Memorial Trophy Dash and the long-term editor of Car and Driver magazine, is among its victims; now, thanks to family friend and One Lap of America veteran Doug Beachem, a fund has been established with the Alzheimer’s Association to honor Brock and advance the fight against the disease."
