Sonoma Raceway will partner with Vitalant to help save lives one ride at a time during a High Speed Blood Drive on Monday, Sept. 9.
Sonoma Raceway puts a non-traditional spin on blood drives by giving donors a chance to get their hearts pumping with a "hot lap" around the course prior to donating blood. Donors will ride along with a professional driving instructor in an official raceway Toyota Camry around the 12-turn road course. The popular event will run from 9 AM - 2 PM at the raceway.
Walk-ups are welcome, but appointments are encouraged and can be scheduled at www.bloodheroes.com' click "locate a blood drive" and enter code "Sonoma Raceway."
To donate blood, all donors must be at least 17 years old (or 16 with parental consent) and bring a valid photo ID. For more information, contact Jennifer Imbimbo with Sonoma Raceway at Jennifer@SonomaRaceway.com or Jeanne Nielsen with Vitalant at JNielsen@vitalant.org.
