Memorial Blood Centers’ Battle of the Badges challenges fire and police departments from across the metro in a friendly competition to save and sustain lives through blood donation.
Your donation can make a difference for those who serve our communities.
In Nov. 2000, Edina Police Officer Mike Blood was shot multiple times at close range by a bank robber with an assault rifle. He needed 19 operations and 120 units of blood and spent a year in the hospital. Thanks to a supply of blood donated by others, he had a chance to recover.
You can schedule a donation today (enter sponsor code 4078). Or contact Annat 651-332-7165.
On the day of your donation, complete your health history questionnaire online at www.mbc.org/idonate.
