Welsh Blood Service
Swansea Harriers are an official community partner with the Welsh Blood Service as part of the ‘Giving Runs in Your Blood’ campaign launched to get runners’ blood pumping at donation centres across the country. Through its ‘Giving Runs in Your Blood’ campaign, runners across Wales are being urged to support blood donation as part of their training programme and make a lifesaving difference to patients in need. The new partnership will see blood, platelets and bone marrow donation promoted at Welsh Athletics’ upcoming national championship events. Blood donations play a vital role in saving lives each day, with donations supporting a range of treatments from helping accident victims or patients with blood cancers to helping mothers and newborn babies during childbirth. With well over 100 running clubs and 13,000 active members in Wales, it is hoped sign-ups from the running community will help the Welsh Blood Service meet the 350 blood donations it needs to collect every day to supply hospitals across the country. To coincide with the campaign’s launch, runners can visit the Welsh Blood Service website to find a range of heart-shaped running routes spread across several Welsh cities and towns or create their very own routes to share.
