- This event has passed.
September 14 @ 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Lauren was born with only 20% blood supply and had to be given blood to survive. Later in her young life, she was diagnosed with Chronic Anemia and Ehler’s Danlos Syndrome. Managing these life-long diseases requires ample blood supply.
For her senior project, Lauren is hosting a blood drive at Rivermont Collegiate. Her goal is to have enough donors to get a scholarship which she plans to donate to Stead Family Children’s Hospital.
The Mississippi Valley Regional Blood Center will be here to conduct the blood drive from 2:00-6:00 pm. The event is open to the public. Students 16 or older (with parent permission), staff, parents, and friends of Rivermont can sign up to give the lifesaving gift of blood.
To sign up to give blood, please email
