Boots Beat Badges!
The 2nd Annual Boots & Badges Blood Drive was a huge success with 216 local police and firefighters participating. The Boots (firefighters) beat the Badges (police) by the slim margin of 16 donors, claiming the trophy and the bragging rights.
This morning Marshall White, Marketing & Donor Recruitment Director for Lane Blood Center, presented the trophy to Lane Fire Authority. Terri Tierney, volunteer firefighter and blood drive coordinator, accepted the trophy on behalf of the 116 Lane County Firefighters who participated in the friendly rivalry.
Lane Blood Cetner is humbled to partner with these, most honorable service organizations, that save lives in Lane County. Although we are just ordinary folks, we are literally making the most extraordinary gift possible; the gift of life.
Lane Blood Center thanks all police and fire forces who participated in this year’s blood drive and congratulate the firefighters on their victory. We look forward to next year’s battle!
