Lifeline of Ohio, OhioHealth, Medline, and Joey Gase are all joining forces this weekend at Mid-Ohio to not only raise awareness for organ and tissue donation during the NASCAR XFINITY Series race but to also honor two Donor Heroes, Jackie Ronk, of Crestline, OH and Reggie Miller of Lakeville, OH. Joey will also be hosting both of their families at the race on Saturday and watching on top of his pit box.
Joey and his team will also be having a private Hand Prints of Hope for both Jackie and Reggie's families and the staff from The Medical Offices at OhioHealth Mansfield Hospital from 12:00-2:00pm on Thursday. During the program they will be invited to make Handprints of Hope and write small messages on Gases’ #35 car. The personal tributes to donor heroes will ride with Gase on the track during his race as an inspiration for fans about the power of donation.
The families of Jackie Ronk and Reggie Miller will both be in attendance at the race to watch their loved ones race around the track with Joey during Saturday’s race. They also will be in attendance at the Hand Prints of Hope Event at Medical Offices at OhioHealth Mansfield Hospital - 335 Glessner Ave., Mansfield, 44875.
