The Pikes Peak Chapter of the American Red Cross partnered with Penrose St. Francis/Centura Health Blood mobile and the Colorado Springs Sky Sox for a night of blood donation at the "Twilight Blood Drive" at Security Service Field, home of our Colorado Rockies minor league baseball team Sky Sox.

Colorado Springs Sky Sox fans were given the opportunity to give blood during the "Twilight Blood Donation" promotion at Security Service Field.

The Red Cross does not duplicate services so as to maximize the use of community resources in the areas we serve and therefore the local Pikes Peak Chapter does not provide Biomedical Services (i.e. blood, tissue, organ donation) or do any chapters in the state of Colorado as there are already numerous organizations that specialize in this field. However, we do fully support the efforts to provide a way for individuals to help save lives through blood donation by partnering with local blood collection agencies and providing volunteers to staff donation drives, snacks for donors where possible, and assist in getting the word out about upcoming blood drives.

Fans were given free tickets to enjoy the game for donating to the blood bank.
Weather was fantastic and we had a great turn out!

  1. It was also the world's first fully waterproof men's Rolex watch with automatic winding and central seconds-hand. Looks - Versatile yet sturdyWhy do I like Replica Rolex so much? You can comfortably wear any Rolex Watches in both men's and ladies' collections with either formal or casual attire. The Replica Rolex Watches look classy and yet are as robust as the sports models.
