Thank You for Defending Australia’s Blood Supply!
The challenge is over, but the need remains…
Although it’s fun to be competitive – a blood feud, if you will – the need for blood is year-round and deadly serious.
On behalf of all those whom your donations helped – including my daughter Leane Townrow who required 5 units on New Years Eve after the difficult deliver of my new granddaughter, Zoe – THANK YOU!

But this mission isn’t over
Australia needs 25,000 donations each week to meet its blood-supply needs.
Every time you donate blood, your gift can save up to three lives – and your donations will be added to your service’s tally throughout the year.
The next Defence Blood Challenge has already begun (1 December) and will conclude on Saturday, 8 December 2018.
So roll your sleeves up ADF and start bleeding.
I for one intend to participate more often this year. My personal goal is to singlehandedly beat Defence Health 😉 ––– Challenge set!!!
