Defence Blood Challenge

Defence Blood Challenge

Get your blood pumping! If you work in defence, get a group together and take part in the Defence Blood Challenge from 1 September – 8 December.

Are you ready for the Defence Blood Challenge? It’s set to be a big one.

Just give blood or plasma between 1 September – 8 December to get involved.

We’re expecting competition to be fierce, with Lifeblood Teams across the country warming up to save the most lives. Teams are made up of people, like you, who care about what's happening in the world. Even though things are a bit different right now, Australians still need your blood and plasma donations.


What's up for grabs

How to get involved

Ready, set... give! 

  1. Register for a blood donor account if you don’t already have one.

  3. Book a time to give life. Every donation you make automatically goes towards your team’s tally and the overall drive total!
