Health Students Blood Challenge

Step up, give blood, go for glory!

In 2016, Australian university health students competing in the Red25 Health Students Blood Challenge made an incredible 2,851 blood donations.

As one donation has the potential to save up to three lives, that equates to around 8,550 people helped! Just let that sink in for a moment…

This year’s challenge is shaping up to be bigger still – and your university needs you!

Without your help, winter can be a particularly tough time for people affected by cancer, blood disease, burns, childbirth complications, surgery, immune conditions and other health issues. When you step up and give blood, it can be that little bit easier. If you’re a member of AMSA (Australian Medical Students Association), ADSA (Australian Dental Students Association) or NAPSA (National Australian Pharmacy Students Association), compete in the Red25 Health Students Blood Challenge.

Take part in the AMSA Vampire Cup or ADSA and NAPSA’s internal challenges and your involvement will be counted in the overall Health Students Blood Challenge!
