Are you up for a challenge?
From June 24 to July 31, GTA hospitals can compete in Canadian Blood Services' annual Hospital Blood Donation Challenge to see which hospital will have the most employees donate blood.
Anonymous blood donors gave Toronto Police Homicide Detective Dave Ecklund a second chance at life. He was diagnosed at the age of 12 with a rare blood disease and was told he had only six months to live without a bone marrow transplant. Twenty-five years later he is sharing his story.
While waiting for a donor, Ecklund stayed alive from countless blood transfusions. For his full story, click here.
Last year UHN won the Hospital Blood Donation Challenge, with nearly 100 employees donating blood.
I hope that this year we can match or exceed that amount and make a difference in our community.
Donating blood takes only one hour and saves up to three lives.
To participate in the challenge at Canadian Blood Services' location at 67 College St. (College St. & Elizabeth St.), book an appointment by calling 1-888-2DONATE or visit www.blood.ca.
This year Canadian Blood Services will host the "What's Your Type" blood-typing booth at our four hospital sites and The Atrium on Bay and we will post information about this on the intranet.
You can make a difference and save a life through blood donation – please consider making this gift.
