In November 2000, Edina Police Officer Mike Blood was shot multiple times at close range by a bank robber with an assault rifle. He needed 19 operations and 120 units of blood and spent a year in the hospital. Thanks to a supply of blood donated by others, he had a chance to recover.

Memorial Blood Centers’ Battle of the Badges challenges fire and police departments from across the Metropolitan area in a friendly competition to save and sustain lives through blood donation.

Invite friends, family, and neighbors to support your Golden Valley Fire and Police Departments in Battle of the Badges and schedule a donation today (enter sponsor code 4078). Or contact Ann at 651-332-7165.

On the day of your donation, complete your health history questionnaire online at
