Defence 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 5,426 donations, which saved up to 16,000 lives. This year, our target is 6,000 donations – and you can help us achieve it.

The challenge is on from 1 September to 8 December 2015. Don’t let another service take the title of Defence’s top blood donors!
