The Spirit of America Blood Drive will return to Michigan International Speedway on Monday, September 11, 2017, from 7:00am to 7:00pm and hopes to take 911 appointments, honoring those killed in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 by saving lives.

Since its inception in 2002, the Spirit of America Blood Drive has collected more than 10,709 blood products, potentially helping to save more than 32,127 lives.

Those who attempt to donate blood will have the opportunity to ride the MIS tram around the track to the “Home of the Brave” exhibit. The exhibit is a 4,000-square-foot multi-media exhibit featuring videos, presidential letters, magazines, newspapers and more. Donors will be treated to lunch in the Champions Club overlooking the track and will receive a Spirit of America gift bag, a commemorative pin and t-shirt.

At the end of the tour, donors will get an up-close view of 2,973 American flags proudly displayed at Unity Field to honor the victims of 9/11. Each flag represents a victim of the attacks, and are placed by community volunteers and the Columbia Central High School Honor Society.

All donors must have an appointment. Appointments can be made by calling 1-866-MIBLOOD (642-5663) or at their website.
