WCSO champs again
The Walker County Sheriff’s Office has, by collecting a total of 83 units, won this year’s Blood Assurance “Battle of the Badges” competition. This was the third time in completition’s four years that Sheriff Steve Wilson has prevailed
Catoosa County Sheriff Gary Sisk was credited with donors having given a total of 64 units of blood.
Each unit donated can save up to three lives, and aside from the sheriffs earning bragging rights, the true winners of this friendly competition are those who receive life-saving blood products.
Whether from traumatic accidents, scheduled surgeries or ongoing medical treatments, there is a constant need for donors. This is particularly during the summer months when blood drives are not held in schools and many companies curtail on-site collections.
Though the “Battle of the Badges” is over, the demand for fresh blood by those fighting for their lives is never ending.
Anyone interested in donating should contact Blood Assurance at 800-962-0628 or visiting bloodassurance.org.
