Nine Cities Blood Challenge: Donate Blood – Get a Free Massage
July 25 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm
The 2018 Nine Cities Blood Drive Challenge is on! Coachella Valley communities are going head-to-head to collect the most LifeStream blood donations to assist local hospital patients and save lives!
Every two seconds, someone needs blood. Here in the Coachella Valley, in the summer months, when our population dips by about 30 percent, we experience a local blood shortage and an increased need for residents to donate blood. And that’s why we’re holding our 6th Annual 9 Cities Challenge Blood Drive every day in July.
Round up the neighbors – donate blood – make our city #1! All blood donors receive a complimentary one hour massage courtesy of Gamble Chiropractic. You can also register to win a Harley-Davidson motorcycle!
Hosted by the Mary Pickford Theatre and the City of Cathedral City.

LifeStream, the exclusive provider of blood products and services to all Coachella Valley hospitals, is pleased to announce the new “ExpressPass” feature for donating blood during the upcoming 6th Annual Nine Cities Challenge Blood Drive. LifeStream’s “ExpressPass” allows potential donors on the day-of-their-donation to save time in the donation process by completing the required pre-donation reading and health history questions before arriving at the donation site. This new feature makes donating faster and easier than in previous years. “Our donors’time is valuable to them, and to us. By using ExpressPass the day of the donation the entire donation process can be reduced to 40 minutes, even less,” said Kevin Moore, LifeStream’s vice president, operations.
