Get Your Heart Pumping and Your Feet Running for VBS

Browse News

Here at Virginia Blood Services, we know so many of our donors live amazingly active lifestyles and not just because it helps make sure that a donation goes well. So we want to celebrate the things that get you moving! Yoga, riding your bike, basketball, walking to lunch and grooving to your favorite dance-centric video game are all ways to have fun while being up and active.

April 4-5 we’ll be the title sponsor of the Charlottesville 8K in partnership with Bad to the Bone during the Charlottesville Marathon weekend. We’re so excited to celebrate runners, our donors and all the movers and shakers at this exciting event in the Downtown Mall in Charlottesville.

If you’re planning to run in the 8K, wear your favorite VBS swag and snap an #unselfie and tag us @vablood. Be sure to check out Facebook for some other announcements surrounding event.

We’re also excited to announce that we’re partnering with Bad to the Bone for discounts for the race in the fall! Come out between April 7th and  July 31st to any of our donation centers throughout the state and give them the Bad to the Bone Endurance Sports code “9332” when you donate. You will in turn be given a code to register for a Bad to the Bone race this Fall at 15% off!
