CANTON, GA -- On Friday, Oct. 15, LifeSouth will be at Sequoyah High School in Canton for the first leg of this year's High School Blood Donor Challenge.
Last spring, Sequoyah became LifeSouth's most productive donor drive when many of the students and faculty came out to donate the gift of life. More than 300 units of blood were collected in six hours -- an average of more than 50 donations per hour.
There is a major rivalry between Sequoyah and Creekview High School, also in Canton. From academics to football to just about every function in which both schools participate, the students and teachers are constantly competing. It became apparent that a blood donation drive would really put these schools to the test.
Creekview's leg of the Blood Donor Challenge will be on Wednesday, Nov.
