GBR's 13th annual Mud for Blood blood drive is a Hit by raising over 107 pints of blood


From all our friends at Georgia Bounty Runners and Jay Bird;

"Thanks everyone. We had a great turn out with 107 pints of blood attempted. My goal was 100. Thanks to all who have. You saved lives today" - Jay Bird

Just received this from Life South. Thanks everyone.....

Good morning Jay,

"On behalf of LifeSouth Community Blood Centers, we want to thank you and the Georgia Bounty Runners for hosting your 13th annual Mud for Blood blood drive with us! Because of your commitment and support, we collected 107 pints of life-saving blood!! You achieved 167% of the blood drive goal (64 pints). Excellent blood drive and way to support the local community hospitals we serve! I’ve attached a more detailed report of the blood drive for you.

Those 107 pints have the potential to help 321 patients in need of blood to live.

Overall drive results were:

  • 126 made the effort to donate

  • 16 donors were deferred

  • 3 donors had to leave before donating

  • 107 pints were collected

Please let me know if you have any questions or need additional information.

Thank you so very much for having us again this year. We enjoyed ourselves and it seemed to be a pleasant experience for the donors, despite the hiccup with the wait times. My supervisor Seandell and I have already made note to order more T-shirts and ask for an extra bus next year. We’ll be on the lookout for next year’s date!

Many thanks for your time and partnering on blood drives with LifeSouth! It is a pleasure working with you! Have a great week J

Kind regards,
