The need for Blood is constant, in fact, every two seconds someone in America needs blood. There is no alternative to blood transfusions for accident victims, women giving birth, cancer patients, people undergoing surgery, and children with blood disorders. The chances are high that you or someone you know will need a blood transfusion in your lifetime.


This family-friendly event invites you, your children, family and friends to come and help the American Red Cross raise awareness and save lives.
