American Red Cross Hurley Fitness Winner Announced

February 24, 2011



Flint, Mich. –The American Red Cross Great Lakes Blood Services Region has joined forces with Hurley Health and Fitness Center of Flint to promote healthy living among blood donors by offering all presenting donors the opportunity to win a three-month gym membership. 

Janine Dawson, a donor from Lapeer, MI, was selected through a drawing as this week’s winner for the February Fitness promotion. Dawson says, “I donate with my friend because we know there is a need.”

For the month of February, all presenting blood and platelet donors at the Flint Donor Center have a chance to win one (1) of four (4) three-month memberships to Hurley Health and Fitness Center of Flint.

Because of poor weather conditions, the Great Lakes Region has experienced a shortfall of nearly 30,000 units since the end of January. As the number of blood donors typically decreases during the winter months, it is even more important that those who are eligible to donate come forward to make an appointment and donate blood.
