Challenge tallies are still available to view on the Challenge results page.

Or

You can look up your Red25 group results, search by date and filter by division

And

You can even compare your group tally  to other groups in your industry

Planning is already underway for 2018 but the dates are yet to be confirmed.

Be sure to sign up to your Red25 group (if you aren’t already a member), to ensure you are included in the next challenge.

The challenge is over, but the need remains…

Although it’s fun to have a short competition, the need for blood is year-round. As a Red25 member, you can donate any time of the year and your donation will count towards your Red25 group’s annual tally. Not only that, you’ll be part of the Red25 movements overall goal, to contribute 25 per cent of Australia’s blood donations.

On behalf of all those who your donations help, thank you!
