Blanket Program

In addition to hosting a pediatric trauma course at Homestead Hospital in November 2013, The NASCAR Foundation and the Childress Institute have also partnered to produce a co-branded fleece blanket that will be distributed to injured children in hospitals throughout the U.S. We hope to raise awareness about the need to ensure high-quality care no matter how or where a child is injured, as well as provide comfort and support for the children and their families during their hospital stay.

Several RCR teams and other NASCAR personalities have offered their support to distribute these blankets at children’s hospitals during the racing season, including a recent visit by RCR NASCAR Nationwide Series Champion Austin Dillon to Phoenix Children’s Hospital.
