Red Cross Racing
Red Cross Racing Kicks Off Season Two
We are proud to announce that for the second year in a row, the Red Cross is encouraging loyal NASCAR fans to donate blood through the Red Cross by joining Red Cross Racing.
NASCAR driver Greg Biffle has signed on again as a Red Cross spokesperson this racing season to raise awareness about the ongoing need for blood donations. Biffle, a Red Cross blood donor and member of the National Celebrity Cabinet, will help get the word out to the 75 million passionate NASCAR fans across the country about the importance of blood donations.
Nearly 22,500 blood donations came in through this program in 2008, and we hope to reach even more NASCAR fans during the 2009 season. This year, the program is offering participants new and exciting rewards for blood donation activities in an effort to increase the number of donors and the number of times they donate.
Fans can join the program by visiting the updated Web site at www.redcrossracing.com, where registrants can start accruing points and exchanging them for NASCAR-themed prizes, such as limited edition die-cast cars.
I encourage everyone to register at redcrossracing.com and show your support this season by cheering on Greg Biffle at the National Sprint Cup Series race this Sunday in Charlotte, N.C. Thanks to a generous donation from 3M, Biffle will wear the Red Cross fire suit and drive the No.16 3M Ford Fusion with the full Red Cross paint scheme.
Make a difference today - give blood!
