Chicagoland Speedway Blood and Bone Marrow Drive

Share:
Hey Race Fans!

Be sure to come out and support the Second Annual NASCAR Foundation Blood and Marrow Drive at Chicagoland Speedway's infield care center on Tuesday, September 11 from 7 a.m. - 8 p.m.

The blood and bone marrow drive, which began as a result of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States, has been held at Michigan International Speedway for the past five years. Because of its success, the NASCAR Foundation decided last year to turn it into a nationwide project with 13 tracks participating in the project.

Fans attending the blood drive will have the opportunity take their picture with authentic NASCAR-style racecars and take van rides around Chicagoland Speedway's 1.5-mile D-shaped oval courtesy of Richard Petty Driving Experience. Donors who are 18 years of age and older can also enter to win four Track Packs to Chicagoland Speedway for the 2008 season.

LifeSource, Chicagoland's Blood Center, is a non-profit corporation established in 1987 through the merger of the Blood Center of Northern Illinois and the Red Cross Blood Services - Mid America Region. LifeSource supplies blood and blood products to 94% of Chicago's hospitals.

LifeSource operates 23 donor centers, 3 mobile unit supported donor centers and conducts an average of 10 mobile blood drives daily. LifeSource recruits donors, collects bone marrow, and draws blood to separate into useful components like: whole blood, platelets, plasma, stem cells and other special products for hospitals and healthcare customers.
