We are working to set up a Blood Drive on either Saturday, 24 September or Sunday, 25 September 2016. In order to lock in a firm date and timeline, we need to provide the INOVA Blood Bank with a list of donors in advance to determine the size of the event. The blood bank is currently booked for the 24th, but they believe our event may draw more donors than their other events combined, so if we have enough attendees we will be able to lock in the 24th, otherwise the event will be scheduled for Sunday. We are hoping to get maximum participation as blood donation can make all the difference in saving a life. The blood drive is part of a larger national campaign led by NORCAL CrossFit in support of Games Athlete James Khalipa’s daughter Ava who was recently diagnosed with Leukemia. Several CrossFit gyms across the nation will be hosting similar blood drives that day.
Given the size of our facility we have the opportunity to give back and provide one central location where donors can give the gift of life. If you are able to donate, please add your name to the sign up form below. Please be sure to add your name to either Saturday or Sunday. If your schedule is flexible please add your name to both dates as this will allow us to determine which date will be a bigger draw and allow Inova to give us a confirmed date. If you can only make one of the days, please select only that date. Please note, we will only be hosting a one-day blood drive, we are just trying to determine the best day for the event.
This event will be open to anyone who wishes to donate, all friends and family and any other local CrossFitters in the surrounding area are welcome. Please sign up via the donor participation form below.
