Drive Toward a Cure - The 2017 Great Southern Adventure

The Great Southern Adventure
September 27-30, 2017

The “Great Southern Adventure” will travel through majestic Smoky Mountains, the historic Blue Ridge Parkway, the picturesque Cherohala Skyway, and the thrilling Tail of the Dragon with 318 curves in 11 miles! All of this and more await you on our Drive Toward a Cure “Great Southern Adventure”.

The adventure starts in Asheville, NC and leads to Braselton, GA – just in time for the Atlanta Concours (read more) – with top-rated accommodations, fine dining, wine tasting, relaxation, camaraderie, some of the most amazing roads in America, our special stage, and memorable moments every step of the way.

Following on the heals of our successful “California Adventure”, comes the next event in the 2017 Drive Toward a Cure calendar: the “Great Southern Adventure.” What could be better than driving your favorite car along the many beautiful and challenging back roads and byways of the south east in late September? Perhaps doing it with your fellow drivers! Classics and exotics together, for the love of driving and the goal in raising funds for Parkinson’s Disease research and patient care.

These are without doubt some of the finest roads in the country and are sure to have you smiling from ear to ear. Once again, your adventure is all-inclusive, with the best hotels, fine dining, quaint lunch venues, luggage transportation, our signature special stages, all the support and unprecedented memories.


Drive Toward a Cure pursues an alternative to the numerous ‘for profit’ rally driving programs through the creation of events that team cars and camaraderie to raise funds in support of the challenges of Parkinson’s Disease while benefiting research and patient care.

The mission of The Parkinson’s Institute (The PI) is to provide comprehensive patient care, while discovering new treatment options to improve the quality of life for all Parkinson’s disease (PD) patients. As America’s only independent non-profit organization combining research and patient care for PD under one roof, we are committed to changing the landscape of movement disorder treatment and research. Since its founding, The PI has helped thousands of PD patients better manage their disease, developed new treatments for PD, and published groundbreaking research aimed to close the gap between science and practical care. By focusing on all three avenues of PD – cause, care and cure – The PI is a powerful force in PD research. Learn more about The Parkinson’s Institute on the Web, Facebook and Twitter.

As the world’s largest nonprofit funder of Parkinson’s Disease research, The Michael J. Fox Foundation is dedicated to accelerating a cure for Parkinson’s disease and improved therapies for those living with the condition today. The Foundation pursues its goals through an aggressively funded, highly targeted research program coupled with active global engagement of scientists, Parkinson’s patients, business leaders, clinical trial participants, donors and volunteers.
In addition to funding more than $450 million in research to date, the Foundation has fundamentally altered the trajectory of progress toward a cure.

Operating at the hub of worldwide Parkinson’s research, the Foundation forges groundbreaking collaborations with industry leaders, academic scientists and government research funders; increases the flow of participants into Parkinson’s disease clinical trials with its online tool, Fox Trial Finder; promotes Parkinson’s awareness through high-profile advocacy, events and outreach; and coordinates the grassroots involvement of thousands of Team Fox members around the world.
