Bikers organize Labor Day blood drive

News

Dozens of bikers came out to donate blood.

The first annual Bikers for Blood drive was held Monday at Cycle City.

The inspiration behind the drive comes from one of the employees who almost lost his life in a vehicle crash three weeks ago.
     
The Blood Bank of Hawaii say this comes at the right time because blood donations during the summer are always low.

“This two weeks leading up to Labor Day weekend can make it extremely difficult because people are starting to end their summer, go back to school and things like that,” said Todd Lewis of the Blood Bank of Hawaii. 

The Blood bank is hoping to collect 200 pints of blood to break the previous record of 171 pints collected on Fourth of July.
