SUCCES OF PARTICIPATION IN THE V EDITION OF THE BLOOD DONATION MARATHON

The Blood Transfusion Centre and the University of Alicante have celebrated with success the V Edition of the Blood Donation Marathon of Personnel of the University of Alicante. A total number of 66 people have participated in this initiative which year after year has become an unavoidable date in the Hall of the Rectorate and General Services.

It outstands the new number of donors, a total of 10 people who have been incorporated to the blood donation thank to this initiative. The blood collection which has started at 9:00 AM has received the visit of some members of the administration staff of the University of Alicante, as the General Secretary, Nuria Fernández, and the vicerector of Economic Planning, Begoña Subiza, both regular blood donors who, since this initiative was created, have never doubted in participating in this supportive action.

The Transfusion Centre “thanks the collaboration of the academic institution, because these kind of initiatives have achieved the improvement of donation rates in the University of Alicante”. Likewise, “it congratulates the blood donors for their valuable contribution, because only they, throughout a gesture which lasted hardly 20 minutes, give a whole life”. And the fact is that, according to last figures published by the Health Department, 300 units of blood are necessary every day to supply the 23 hospitals of the Province of Alicante, an impossible task without the will and the altruism of blood donors.
