Thousands helped in Heroes Behind the Badges Blood Drive

Posted: Updated:

With a prick and a bit of time, you could cast your vote in the Heroes Behind the Badges Blood Drive.

"Police Department. The fire department won last year. Let's try and keep things equal," said donor Troy Walberg.

"The police department won, but the fire department twisted the numbers," said Srgt. Steve Van't Hul.

Competition often brings out the best in people. This holiday season, 1,014 people donated blood, helping more than 3,000 patients.

"You never know when you might need it or when a family member might need it, so it's just good to give back," said donor Tara Zahn.

"I'm getting older in age. Sooner or later I'm going to be going to a hospital, or if you get in an accident you have to go a hospital. I'd like to make sure there's blood available for me," added Walberg.

Helping others is the ultimate goal when it comes to the Heroes Behind the Badges Blood Drive.
