Blood Bank of Delmarva is holding the 11th Annual Summer Blood Challenge until Sept. 14. Participating companies registered in May.

“The Summer Blood Challenge is a friendly, Delmarva-wide competition among employers and community organizations,” said Roy Roper, Blood Bank of Delmarva CEO. “The summer months are typically slower for blood donations and the competitive spirit and prizes help motivate donors as well as attract new members and donors.”

Registered organizations will earn points based on blood donations, new members and more. The grand prize is a 2014 Mazda 6 courtesy of Martin Mazda. Second prize is a $2,000 TD Bank Visa Gift Card and third prize is a $1,000 TD Bank Visa Gift Card. Two $50 TD Bank Visa Gift Cards will also be awarded each week throughout the challenge. Last year, a record 226 companies participated in the Summer Blood Challenge. The event resulted in 11,790 blood donations and 1,985 new Blood Bank members.

“We had a record breaking year last year,” Roper said. “We anticipate tremendous support from our dedicated, Delmarva donors who save local lives and have helped ensure a stable blood supply in this community for almost 60 years. We are grateful to everyone who takes the time to help others where we live.”
