Congratulations to the 2016 winners!

See where your Red25 group placed in your state.

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 per cent of all of Australia’s blood donations.

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

Thank you for being a lifesaver!
