As the BloodCenter of Wisconsin recognizes January as National Blood Donor Month — honoring the generosity of donors who take time out of their schedules to give the gift of life — a local donation center is in the running to land a visit from Green Bay Packers fullback John Kuhn.
The BloodCenter's Run Your Route has been extended to Jan. 13. The challenge has area donor centers competing for a postseason party with Kuhn.
With a little more than a week left in the competition, the Greenfield center, 7210 W. Edgerton Ave., is currently third of 11 donor centers, behind Racine's and Manitowoc's donor centers, which are tied for first.
Anyone who attempts to donate before Jan. 13 at the winning donor center will be invited to the postseason party. Visit www.bcw.edu/kuhn to track the competition and watch a video of the Pro Bowl fullback’s inspirational message about why he gives.
Party location and details will be disclosed when the winning donor center is announced.
To schedule an appointment, donors can visit www.bcw.edu or call 1-877-BE-A-HERO (1-877-232-4376). Appointments are preferred, but walk-ins are welcomed.
