DONATION FAST FACTS

SECONDS
It takes less time to register one’s decision to donate than it does for a Midget driver to complete a qualifying attempt (2 laps) at a dirt track.
MINUTES
In the time it takes to run a heat race at a dirt track, another person is added to the national transplant waiting list.
THOUSAND
More than 114,000 people nationwide are waiting for lifesaving organ transplants. That’s enough people, if standing side by side, to circle the track at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway (IMS) almost 10 times.
PEOPLE
Each day, 20 people on average in the U.S. die because a donated organ wasn’t made available in time. That’s equivalent to the first seven rows of cars in the Indy 500 starting lineup.
