Battle of the Badges Encourages Blood Donations

Posted:

With it being September 11 today...

one way you can give back and support local law enforcement is to donate blood.

It's the 7th Annual Battle of the Badges at Kirkwood mall in Bismarck.

It's a competition between fire and law agencies to see who can bring in the most donors.

Michael Sampsill is supporting Team Fire and has been giving blood at this event for many years.

"Just to help out. I know that if I were to be in trouble that I would like to have the blood to be able to help cure me or whatever," says Michael Sampsill.

Team fire has won four out of the past six years and team law has won twice.

The tallies are counted after the final day of the event.

All donors receive a T-shirt and can also look forward to door prizes and other special events.

"We, of course, are always trying to get new donors to come in. Those first time donors are very important to us and so doing an event like this and teaming up with our fire and law agencies really, people want to come out and support the cause," says Stephanie Radenz, Donor Recruitment Manager, United Blood Services."

If you didn't get a chance to donate today, Battle of the Badges continues through Friday September 13.
