Sunrise Childrens Hospital Patients Meet Nascar Driver
Victory Lane Kids* Makes Pit Stop Before Las Vegas Race
Placing Children with Life-Threatening Illnesses in NASCAR's Victory Lane
[LAS VEGAS, NV] NASCAR driver Lance Norick will autograph pictures and give away matchbox replicas of his #90 Aventis Behring Choice Chevrolet Silverado for patients at Sunrise Children's Hospital on behalf of his Victory Lane Kids* program Thursday, October 11, 2001 at 11AM.
Victory Lane Kids* is a partnership between Norick and his sponsor, Aventis Behring, LLC. Aventis Behring makes blood-clotting products that help people with hemophilia live healthy, active lives. Hemophilia is a potentially life-threatening bleeding disorder and without proper treatment of the missing or deficient clotting factor, those with hemophilia are at constant risk of hemorrhage.
Victory Lane Kids* is dedicated to increasing community awareness about bleeding disorders and to assist local area support groups in their fund raising efforts. Associate sponsorships on Norick's #90 Aventis Behring Choice Chevrolet are available and those funds are donated back into the local hemophilia community.
