Gift-of-Life Marathon Blood Drive
Tue Dec 17 2013 - Tue Dec 17 2013
It’s time to roll up your sleeves for the Gift-of-Life Marathon and get the Rutland area the national recognition it deserves for being so dedicated to those in need.
The eleventh annual Gift-of-Life Marathon Blood Drive is December 17, 2013 in Rutland, Vermont.
Every two seconds, someone in this country needs blood. Forty-four thousand blood donations are needed daily to help trauma victims, surgical patients, burn victims, patients with blood disorders and many others.
Over the past 10 years, Rutland has continuously given pints of blood to those in need, including 1,955 pints at the Gift-of-Life Marathon last year, just 13 pints shy of the national record. We are proud of this huge accomplishment, and we want more! Help us get to the national record this year, make your appointment today.
There will be five locations set up in the Rutland community for the blood drive from 10:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m. Make your appointment online today.
