Why Give Blood?
Community Blood Center must collect almost 600 units of blood daily to meet the needs of area hospital patients.  As there is no substitute for blood, we rely on volunteer donors like you to supply the life-saving blood and blood components to hospitals in Kansas and Missouri.
The 7th Annual Topeka South Rotary Pumpkin Run is quickly approaching! Our fun, family-friendly 5K run/walk is a USATF-certified race course for both serious and casual runners. Everyone is encouraged to dress in your favorite Halloween attire as there will be a costume contest with a prize for one lucky adult and one lucky child! The run takes place at Lake Shawnee, Shelter House #1 at 8:30am on October 26, 2019. Register here today: Funds raised will be donated to Polio Plus!
