American Flags placed at Unity Field to honor victims of 9-11Share
Unity Fields features more than 3,000 American Flags proudly displayed to the honor the victims of 9-11. In Lot 10 at Michigan International Speedway, the flags were placed by members of the Columbia Central High School National Honor Society. In addition, members from the Brooklyn America Legion, the Cambridge Township Fire Department, Gleaner Arbor in Adrian, Mich. and MIS staff assisted.
The Sprit of America Blood Drive at the racetrack began as a tribute in 2002 in honor of the victims and heroes of 9-11. Since its inception in 2002, the Spirit of America blood drive has collected more than 8,876 pints of blood, positively affecting more than 26,688 lives.
MIS is partnering with Michigan Blood, a nonprofit, community service organization founded in 1955, to host the blood drive and Be the Match® Registry drive.
