American Red Cross Hurley Fitness Winner Announced

March 2, 2011


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

Miles Allen, a donor from Flushing, was the lucky winner for the third week of the promotion, and was selected through a drawing. Allen is a local firefighter; he stated, “It was my first time donating.”

For the month of February, all blood and platelet donors who came to donate at the Flint Donor Center had the chance to win one (1) of four (4) three-month memberships to Hurley Fitness Center of Flint.

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