2017 Defence Blood Challenge Launch

Defence has officially launched the 2017 Defence Blood Challenge, aiming to exceed 7,000 donations in 2017.

The 2017 challenge was launched by the Chief of Navy, Vice Admiral Tim Barrett and the Australian Red Cross Blood Service Executive Director, Dr Frances Guyett at a ceremony.

The three month long event pits the Army, Navy, Air Force and Defence Public Servants against each other in an effort to strengthen Australia’s blood supplies and support the Australian community.
