We will be shutting down the gym Friday, July 17th on behalf of another lifesaving blood drive
held by United Blood Services. Become a hero and donate blood to help save those patients in
need. We ask if you can sacrifice one WOD out of your week by donating, which your one
donation could save up to three lives. Blood donations are used for many purposes, including
armed service men and women posted overseas. Donors are suggested to hold off on working
out before or after donating blood for health and safety reasons, basically, to sacrifice the WOD.
Members who lose workout time on 7/17 owing to the blood drive are encouraged to make up
the WOD on 7/18. Beartooth will host a special “HERO DONOR WOD” from 9-10 and from
10-11 a.m. Saturday 7/18. DONORS PLEASE STAY HYDRATED FOR SATURDAY
Beartooth’s blood drive will run from 2:00-5:30 p.m. on Friday, July 17th at the gym. To help
streamline the donation process, complete your online health history questionnaire before you
come to the drive. The health history must be completed the same day as the donation; it
cannot be completed a day or two ahead of time. To access the questionnaire, go to the
following website: http://unitedbloodservices.org/health.aspx to create an account and sign
in. https://www.bloodhero.com/index.cfm?group=op is the link for setting up a time during the
drive to give blood. (Expect up to 1 hour of your time during your blood draw.) Use the link to
choose a donor time between 2:00 and 5:30 p.m. Beartooth will also have a sign up sheet
available for donors who have not registered online. Or call United Blood Services at 406-248-
9168 to make your appointment!
Important: Before you start the questionnaire, please enter your first and last name exactly as it
appears on your donor ID card (if you don’t have a card, use your legal name). Do not use
punctuation marks (such as apostrophes) or special characters (such as hyphens).
Lastly, make sure to eat a hearty meal and drink plenty of non-caffeinated beverages before
coming in to donate. Please encourage family members, friends and neighbors to donate too!
Thank you for finding the hero in you!
