Local Charities Win Thousands in Blood Donation Challenge

Three local charities won thousands for their respective organizations in this year’s Bleed for a Cause challenge, with last year’s reigning champions taking home the $10,000 first prize once again.

Hoxworth Blood Center teamed up with TOYOTA Motor Engineering & Manufacturing North America and Montgomery Inn for the third annual charity competition focused on recruiting blood donations within the community.

Bleed for a Cause was held during the month of July and included 60 local charities that went head-to-head to encourage new and returning blood donors to give in their name.   “The Bleed for a Cause challenge resulted in 1,735 donors, which helped to save over 5,200 individuals in Tri-State hospitals” said Hoxworth spokesperson Alecia Lipton.

The following charities recruited the most donors:

$10,000 First Place Winner: Adore-a-Bull Rescue

$5,000 Second Place Winner: Brandon C. Gromada Head & Neck Cancer Foundation

$2,500 Third Place Winner: Kindervelt of Cinti. Children's Medical Ctr.

An award ceremony for winning charities will be held during a reception at Hoxworth Blood Center at 2 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 25.
