We are thrilled to announce that we are joining forces with Stefan Wilson and KV Racing Technology to promote organ, tissue and eye donation and transplantation around the Indianapolis 500. Stefan will drive the No. 25 Driven2SaveLives – KVRT Chevrolet in this year’s race. Together, Stefan and Indiana Donor Network hope to get 2,500 people across the country to register their decision to donate through Driven2SaveLives.
Stefan’s late brother, IndyCar driver Justin Wilson, died in August 2015 from injuries he sustained in a race crash at Pocono Raceway in Pennsylvania. Justin had previously registered his decision to become an organ donor and saved five people with his gift of life. Stefan, like many race car drivers, had always dreamed of driving in the Indy 500. Now, in a car emblazoned with his brother’s number 25, Stefan will take to the biggest stage in racing to honor the life and legacy of his older brother.
Follow Stefan’s journey throughout the month of May at Driven2SaveLives.org.
