The Spirit of America Blood Drive, held at the Michigan International Speedway (MIS), had its best year ever! On Sept. 11th, 2017, Michigan Blood wasn't able to get to 911 appointments, but got EXTREMELY close: 842 appointments overall!

We also collected 74 more units of blood over the previous year.

Overall, Michigan Blood collected more than 500 units of blood, meaning that up to 1,500 lives were saved!

Thank you to everyone who came to our event! We'll see you again on Sept. 11, 2018!
