The 15th Annual Summer Blood Challenge has a new theme! We’re hitting the road from May 15th, 2017 to September 23rd, 2017. BBD will drive 10,000 miles and meet many donors who are separated geographically but are connected by their altruism and passion for helping save lives. Now THAT’S something worth celebrating! Look for a special mobile event at a Texas Roadhouse near you.
Can’t join us on the road? Don’t worry – you can still participate and help save lives. AND did we mention all donors could win a $50 gift card courtesy of TD Bank and a 2018 vacation at the Residences at Lighthouse Cove, located in the heart of Dewey, DE? You can find more contest details below!
How to Participate
Individual donors can meet us on the road OR come to any donor center to be a part of our Summer Road Trip. ALL donors who give from May 15th to September 23rd will be eligible to win Summer Road Trip prizes.
Participating businesses and organizations can compete all summer by recruiting donors to give on behalf of their organization. The organizations with the most donors in each size category and the most donors by percentage at the end of the summer will win recognition and awards! You will be able to track your progress with BBD’s bi-weekly company newsletter. ALL donors who give on behalf of their organization from May 15th to September 23rd will be eligible to win Summer Road Trip prizes.
