    Donate Blood
Academic Blood Challenge (ABC)
High School Program

Program Goals

  • Local high school students play an important role in maintaining our region’s blood supply because they provide a steady source of first-time donors, which is an important part of ensuring an adequate blood supply today and in the future.
  • It is this initial blood donation experience that is the primary determining factor in whether a person will regularly donate blood throughout his/her lifetime.
  • This challenge not only recognizes student contribution, but also will increase our future donor base.
