Councils blood challenge

1 JULY–30 SEPT 2017


Local governments across Australia are again competing to give the most blood donations in their state during the Red25 Councils Blood Challenge 2017.

Last year, 196 local government groups gave an amazing 3,839 donations altogether. Since each donation saves up to three lives, that’s up to 11,517 lives saved.

Rise to the challenge. Join with your colleagues to beat other local governments in your state!
 



Every group has the chance to win

The size of your council or directorate doesn’t matter. Winners will be selected within their state for categories including:

  • Highest total donations
  • Highest year-on-year growth (compared to 2016, must have had 10 donations your 2016 tally to quality)
  • Highest number of new donors
  • Highest number of donations versus Red25 members (minimum of 20 members)
     


How to get involved

  1. Book a blood donation appointment for between 1 July–30 September online or by calling 13 14 95
