Save a Life by Donating Blood – 9 Cities Challenge

The 10th annual ‘9 Cities Challenge’ kicks off Friday, July 1, and runs until Wednesday, Aug. 31.

The 2022 Nine Cities Blood Drive Challenge has begun in Cathedral City!  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 LifeStream is holding its annual 9 Cities Challenge Blood Drive this summer.

While supplies last, every donor who participates in the challenge will receive a special edition T-shirt, beach towel, and coupon for a free scoop at Ben & Jerry’s – The River.
