Bloodmobiles and hot laps as Sonoma Raceway and Vitalant team up for Blood Drive March 3, 2023
Right now, your help is needed more than ever! Come support patients during their time of need by joining us at the Sonoma Raceway Blood Drive on Friday, March 3, 2023. Appointments for the drive will be from 8:15 am to 12:00 pm.
With an appointment to donate, you can start by getting your heart pumping with a “hot lap” around Sonoma Raceway’s 12-turn road course prior to donating blood. Donors will ride along with a professional driving instructor in a Sonoma Raceway Toyota Camry. Donors wanting to take a lap should do so before donating. The last “hot lap” will be at 11:45 am.
In an emergency, it’s the blood already on hospital shelves that saves lives. Last year, 67 donors participated, with 25 first-time donors coming out to support the drive. 83 units of blood were donated, which translates to 249 potential lives saved by that event alone.
Advance appointments are strongly encouraged to help maintain social distancing. In addition, sanitizing and disinfecting measures are taking place throughout the process. Walk-ins are welcome depending on available appointment slots. Click on the link below to schedule your appointment:
