The Blood Battle 2019

10.12. - 11.12.

TXO ry AND FINNISH RED CROSS BLOOD SERVICE CHALLENGES YOUR STUDENT ASSOCIATION TO THE BLOOD BATTLE FROM 11 FEBRUARY TO 11 DECEMBER 2019!

The blood donation contest between the student associations is launched once again in cooperation with Finnish Red Cross Blood Service!

In the blood donation race, points a collected as a BloodGroup, with one student association being one blood group. A point can be awarded, when during registration you mention your BloodGroup/student association. Points can correspondingly be obtained from platelet and stem cell donation. All participants also get an overall patch!

Every weekday at least 800 blood donors are needed in Finland to help victims of accidents, premature babies and people fighting cancer.

Competing is easy
