Kart-O-Mania to hold blood drive December 2nd

From press release

Montreal’s indoor karting centre Kart-O-Mania invites everyone to give blood and save someone’s life December 2nd.

In Quebec, a person needs blood every 80 seconds. Hema-Quebec would like to remind you that blood is an irreplaceable resource and its components have a limited life span – only five days in the case of platelets and 42 days in the case of red blood cells. This makes it all the more important to come and give blood regularly.

The blood drive will take place at Kart-O-Mania, located at 5196, de la Savane, in Montreal. The organizers wish to welcome 75 donors between 11 am and 6 pm.

Who can give?

Any healthy individual, 18 or older, who satisfies Héma-Québec’s eligibility criteria can contribute to Québec’s collective reserve by giving blood every 56 days, namely six times per year.

To find out if you are eligible to give blood, call 1 800-847-2525, visit Héma-Québec’s Internet site at www.hema-quebec.qc.ca, “Donate” section, or contact us through Facebook or Twitter.
