Health Students Blood Challenge

The Red25 Health Students Blood Challenge has now wrapped up for 2016, thank you to all of the generous people who gave blood during the challenge. In just three short months, Health Students from ADSA, AMSA, NAPSA and SPA gave a total of 2,851 donations, saving up to 8,550 lives!

For the first time in 2016 these four associations were competing against one another to see who could achieve the highest percentage of growth on their 2015 challenge donation figures.

The inaugural winner who receives the highly acclaimed cup is the Australian Students Dental Association (ADSA) with a massive 48% increase. Congratulations ADSA!

See where your Red25 group placed

Planning is already underway for 2017 but the dates are yet to be confirmed. Be sure to sign up to your organisation’s Red25 group (if you aren’t already a member) to make sure 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 actually year-round. As a Red25 member, you can donate any time of the year and your donation will count towards your emergency service’s annual tally. Not only that, but you’ll be part of Red25’s overall goal of making 25 percent of all of Australia’s blood donations.

On behalf of all those who your donations help, thank you. Every single donation has changed lives.
