Blood bank awards donors free entries to 5k

The San Diego Blood Bank is offering blood donors a day of free food and entertainment.

Donors who give blood between Sunday, June 28, and Sunday, July 5, at any San Diego Blood Bank Donor Center or bloodmobile will receive two free entries into the 8th annual 5K Walk/Run presented by Ralph’s and Food 4 Less on Sunday, July 19.

Proceeds from the 5K Walk/Run will benefit the lifesaving services and programs of the San Diego Blood Bank, which includes processing and testing hundreds of pints of blood collected each day.

This year the race will be held in coordination with the Port of San Diego at the Embarcadero Marina Park North, with registration at 7 a.m. and the race at 8 a.m. July 19. Racers will be treated to a lunch provided by Rubio’s and Subway, as well as a T-shirt and a “family fun zone” with games for all.
