198 Patients Get the Gift of Blood

Thanks to everyone who contributed to and participated in the #3 Ryan Salmons Day of Giving on Saturday, December 19th. The response and results were terrific. View Photos Here
The American Red Cross collected 68 pints of blood (25 from first time donors), which will affect the lives of 198 patients in central Ohio. Proceeds from raffle tickets and merchandise sales will benefit both the Columbus Blue Jackets Foundation and Ryan Salmons Foundation respectively in their quest to battle and aid the families subjected to pediatric cancer.

On behalf of the American Red Cross, both charities and the many patients and families who will benefit from this event, THANK YOU!
