Team Hemophilia Races for NHF
 

The National Hemophilia Foundation (NHF) has teamed up with Andretti Green Racing
(AGR) and Bayer HealthCare to create Team Hemophilia, a new hemophilia fundraising
and awareness campaign, at race tracks across the country. The campaign kicked off on
March 24, 2007, with the first race at the Homestead-Miami Speedway, will pick up
speed with the 91st running of the Indy 500 in May and finishes with the last race at
Chicagoland Speedway in September.

Race fans support the cause by bidding for special race packages at eBay’s online auction
site. The packages contain exclusive behind-the-scenes AGR hospitality passes, pit
credentials, and the opportunity to meet and greet AGR drivers. The VIP Race Weekend
and Ultimate Indy 500 Race Fantasy packages contain round-trip airfare and hotel
accommodations for two guests. Chapters can get involved by auctioning off race
packages for races in their vicinity.  All of the proceeds benefit NHF and the local
chapters.

AGR drivers featured include some of the top contenders in IndyCar racing—Marco
Andretti, second place finisher in the 2006 Indy 500 and Rookie of the Year; Danica
Patrick, the newest addition to the team and the first woman to lead the Indy 500; Dario
Franchitti and Tony Kanaan. Andretti appeared at NHF’s 58th Annual Meeting in
Philadelphia in 2006 for a press conference in which he presented a check for $10,000 to
NHF on behalf of AGR and Bayer HealthCare. He signed autographs and took
photographs with fans.
