Pocono Raceway and the American Red Cross invite blood donors to attend the 14th Annual Pocono Raceway Ride for the Red and Blood Drive.
The events will be held on Tuesday, July 2 at the Pocono Raceway, located at 1234 Long Pond Road, Long Pond, Pennsylvania. The Ride for the Red runs from noon until 6 p.m. and the blood drive runs from 1 to 7 p.m.
In addition to giving blood, attendees are invited to “Ride for the Red.” A $10 per lap donation will enable participants to drive a lap or laps around Pocono Raceway using their own vehicles. Blood donors who plan to participate should do so before they donate. All proceeds will benefit Red Cross disaster relief efforts in the Pocono Mountains, which helps families prepare for, respond to and recover from disasters, both big and small.
All presenting blood donors will be entered into a drawing for a chance at one of three prizes courtesy of Pocono Raceway: 4 Terrace Club tickets to the Gander RV 400 NASCAR race on July 28; a James Hinchcliffe autographed item and 2 Terrace Club tickets to the ABC Supply 500 Indy Car race on August 18; 4 tickets to The Great Pocono Raceway Air Show on August 24 or 25. In addition the first 200 presenting blood donors will receive a Pocono Raceway $50 gift card, valid for Pocono Raceway ticketed events.
