One Donor Wins Three Month Gym Membership


Flint, MI –The American Red Cross Great Lakes Blood Services Region, in partnership with Hurley Health and Fitness Center of Flint promoted healthy living among blood donors throughout February and has rewarded another two lucky blood donors.

Last month, the Red Cross has joined forces with Hurley Health and Fitness Center to offer everyone who came out to donate at the Flint Donor Center in February the opportunity to win a three-month gym membership.

 Sister Joanne Fedewa, a donor from Flint, was randomly selected this week. Fedewa donates because “My blood type is high in demand and it is an easy way to help others.”

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 Fitness Center of Flint.

Due to poor weather conditions, the Great Lakes Region has experienced a shortfall of 28,000 units since the end of January.  As the quantity 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.
