“RP The Ride of My Life”
This powerful documentary about Nancy and her family’s journey through many years of struggling with painful and debilitating symptoms with an unknown cause, eventually being diagnosed with an extremely rare autoimmune disease, Relapsing Polychondritis (“RP”), and ultimately finding the strength and courage to persevere with a purpose to raise awareness about RP, help others in diagnosis and support, and advance research efforts about this and other autoimmune diseases in pursuit of treatments and cures.
In 2020, Flewitt will represent the Race for RP for a full season in the British GT Championship Pro/Am and the Pure McLaren GT Series in a McLaren 570S GT4
Jeff Westphal, Race for Relapsing Polychondritis driver, is pulling double duty – again. He’ll be racing in both the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge 2020 season opener, the BMW Endurance Challenge at Daytona, and as part of the four man Scuderia Corsa team in the Rolex 24 Hours at Daytona.
The Race for Relapsing Polychondritis (RP) is thrilled that Neil Langberg was awarded 2019 Driver of the Year in the Pure McLaren GT Series, an FIA sanctioned international one-make racing championship based around the astounding McLaren 570S GT4.
The Race for RP and the RP Foundation and were most pleased to facilitate the IRPRN meeting and look forward to supporting future collaborative meetings that benefit the RP and autoimmune disease communities.
We are pleased to announce that the patient perspective submission by Nancy Linn, Founder of Race for RP, was selected by the American College of Rheumatology / Association of Rheumatology Professionals (ACR/ARP) Abstract Selection Committee for presentation at the 2019 ACR/ARP Annual Meeting, to be held in Atlanta, GA, November 9-13, 2019.
