The 14th annual Eric’s Amazing Race Car Rally and Silent Auction (for Muscular Dystrophy and Genetic Research), will be held Saturday, Oct. 29.

The fundraiser begins at noon at Bruce T. Lindley School, 2510 Cavendish Dr., and ends around 3 p.m. at the Burlington Legion, 828 Legion Rd.

Registration will be held between noon and 1 p.m.

The silent auction runs between 3-7 p.m. (approximately) at the Legion. There will also be a raffle and entertainment by Semi Tone.

Over the years, Eric’s Amazing Race has raised more than $210,000 for Defeat Duchenne Canada, a charitable organization that raises funds for research into Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) and stem cell therapies

“When our family started this event in 2003 we had only one goal in mind – to fund research to help find a cure for Duchenne muscular dystrophy,” said Ted Lindsay, Burlington Post account executive and the founder and organizer of Eric’s Amazing Race, along with his wife Heather.

“To date there is still no cure but we are confident that with so many amazing things happening in the world of research a cure is imminent. We will never give up because for Eric, and other boys who live with Duchenne, it truly is a race against time.”

Eric’s Amazing Race is named for Lindsay’s nephew, Oakville resident Eric Morden, who was diagnosed with DMD in 2002. DMD eventually affects all voluntary muscles, including the heart. The disease is fatal.
