9 Cities Challenge 2021

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

Our Ninth Annual 9 Cities Challenge returns! This summer’s blood drive challenge is an opportunity to direct a positive, meaningful focus of community energy toward assisting our most vulnerable loved ones, friends, neighbors and colleagues.

This two month initiative is about the importance of community well-being. For the benefit of patients in need who are in peril without a safe, ample blood supply being available, we ask that you be a visible, outspoken advocate within your community for the cause of voluntary blood donation. All donors receive, while supplies last, a special edition, Nine Cities T-shirt, too.

NOTE: You CAN donate blood whether or not you’ve received a COVID-19 vaccination.

We all can agree on this: Regardless of what Valley communities reap Nine Cities championship titles, the real winners of the challenge are local hospital patients. (But isn’t it better to win?)
