Blood challenge draws large response

The Health 1000 class in East Carolina University’s College of Health and Human Performance was this semester’s winner of a blood donation competition. The Health 1000 and Kinesiology 1000 classes compete each semester, with students and faculty members coming out to give blood. The Feb. 16 challenge brought out 298 donors from Health 1000 and 180 donors from Kinesiology, for a total collection of 349 units of blood. The challenge was held at the Student Recreation Center.

Sponsored by the College of Health and Human Performance, the event promotes civic engagement and positive mental health through volunteering and service-learning.
