If We All Do A Little, We Can Change A Lot.

Every 2 seconds, someone needs blood.

Here in the Coachella Valley, in the summer months when our population dips by about 30 percent, we experience a local blood shortage. And an increased need for residents to donate blood.

And that’s why every day in July, when blood supply is at its lowest, we’re holding our sixth annual 9 Cities Challenge Blood Drive.

Please join us in supporting this very worthwhile cause. We need your help. Donate.

If We All Do A Little, We Can Change A Lot.

All donors receive a ticket voucher to Wet ‘n’ Wild Palm Springs and a coupon for four free Jack in the Box tacos. Each person who donates blood also receives a red #9CitiesChallenge wristband. Take a photo wearing the wristbrand and share it on social media – and challenge family, friends, co-workers and organizations to donate!

By joining together, we know we all can agree on one thing: the real winners will be our local hospital patients and area accident victims.

Thank you for your support!

If We All Do A Little, We Can Change A Lot.

Our Valley is currently experiencing a severe local blood shortage. Supplies are at dangerously low levels.

And that’s why every day in July, when blood supply is at its lowest, we’re holding our seventh annual 9 Cities Challenge Blood Drive.

Please join us in supporting this very worthwhile cause. Whether it’s for cancer patients, transplant recipients or accident victims, we can’t help save lives without you.

Donors receive a 9 Cities Challenge baseball-style cap and a movie ticket at participating locations. When donating, be sure to take a photo and share it on social media – and challenge family, friends, co-workers and organizations to donate!

Thank You for Your Support!
