Did you know that 4.5 million American lives are saved each year by blood transfusions and that three lives are saved by one pint of donated blood?

These are just some of the facts that I learned preparing for this year's Blood and Marrow Drive, Friday, September 11th on the 4th Floor of the Speedway Club Building at Texas Motor Speedway. We are once again partnering with Carter Blood Care to join tracks across the Nation in making you a hero!

While you are here you will also have the opportunity to join the National Marrow Donor Program Registry. The process is non-invasive; it involves swabbing the inside of your cheek, will only take a few minutes of your time and could potentially save a life!

Last year we had an incredible turn out and this year we are hoping you will help us double those efforts to help more people.

I look forward to seeing you September 11th.
