Did you know that by just donating blood one time, you could potentially be saving the lives' of multiple people? Besides that, other benefits of being a donor include keeping your iron levels balanced, having better blood flow, and receiving a mini check-up in the process. If that's not enough, an upcoming blood drive being hosted by Miramont Lifestyle Fitness and  UCHealth will give you one more perk of donating – how does a free 16 ounce beverage from The Human Bean sound? 

From 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. on March 3, UCHealth will be setting up their mobile unit in the parking lot of Miramont's Central location, 2211 S. College Ave., and are inviting members of the community to stop by to donate blood. Donors will receive a free coupon to use at The Human Bean on a delicious coffee or refreshing smoothie drink. Those choosing to participate in the blood drive must be at least 18 years of age (17 with parental consent), new donors must weigh at least 120 pounds and are required to be in good health overall. Prior donors must weigh at least 110 pounds. To register in advance, stop by and add your name to the sign-up sheet at the Central Front Desk – walk-ups will also be accepted during the day of the drive.
