The Reston Runners are teaming up with INOVA Blood Donation Services here with us this weekend to address the critical blood shortage caused by the recent snow storms. The runners, who have been planning a 5-mile run and 3-mile walk from Fountain Square, are encouraging runners and patrons of Reston Town Center to give blood on January 9th following the run.

“We are hopeful that Reston Runners can make a difference on Jan 9th with a big turnout of donors,” said a representative from the Reston Runners.

The INOVA Blood Donation Services supplies 15 hospitals in the metropolitan area, and the blood supply at any given time constitutes only about 30-50% of the need and in an emergency.

The bloodmobile will be on site next to the Reston Town Center Pavilion on Saturday, January 9th from 8:30am – 12:30pm. Walk-ins are welcome, but you may schedule your appointment time by calling 1.866.256.6372 or online at Panera Bread is donating indoor space for registration – we want you to stay warm! For more information about race training after giving blood, visit the Reston Runners online.
