Continue your legacy of saving lives

The Battle of the Badges is an annual competition between teams of first responders to raise awareness of the importance of donating blood. The event challenges first responders to bring together the community, friends, and family members in a friendly competition to save and sustain lives through blood donation. The department with the highest participation and most life-saving units wins the competition.

Support your local heroes and help save lives by scheduling a blood drive with your city, police or fire department, or local community center. Contact us to get started. 

Congratulations to the 2018 Battle of the Badges winner and Rookie of the Year!
