Tracy Sankbeil of Wisconsin helped the American Red Cross keep the blood supply on track this spring and was awarded a trip for four to the 2022 Indianapolis 500®. The Red Cross and INDYCAR ® teamed up to refuel the blood supply in April by offering donors a chance to win a trip to experience the speed and excitement of the Indy 500® up close.
Those who raced to give blood, platelets or plasma April 1-15, 2021, were automatically entered for a chance to win a VIP package for four, including premium tickets to the 2022 Indianapolis 500® Mile Race, four Garage & Pit Credentials and passes to attend a meet and greet opportunity with driver(s), round-trip airfare, three-night hotel accommodations, plus a $500 gift card for expenses.
Blood drive safety
The Red Cross has updated its pandemic safety protocols in alignment with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Occupational Safety and Health Administration. Fully vaccinated individuals, including staff and donors, no longer need to wear masks or socially distance. Unvaccinated individuals continue to be required to wear masks and socially distance. Donors are asked to schedule an appointment prior to arriving at the drive.
