Defence Blood Challenge

Every year, Army, Navy, Air Force and Defence civilian personnel across Australia compete to give the most blood donations and save the most lives.

Last year, the combined services gave 6,486 donations, which saved up to 19,400 lives. This year, our target is 7,000 donations – and you can help us achieve it.

The challenge is on from 1 September to 8 December 2016 and includes awards for most donations, highest percentage of donors and highest donation percentage growth from 2015 results. This gives your service even more chances to win. Don’t let another service take the title of Defence’s top blood donors!

How to join the mission

If you aren’t a member of Red25 (Red Cross Blood Service’s group donation program) simply:

  1. Book a blood donation appointment for 1 September–8 December online or by calling 13 14 95.
  2. Join your service’s Red25 group.
  3. Give blood to have your donation automatically added to your group’s tally.
  4. Track your group’s results online during the challenge.
