Blood Drive Tomorrow



Who remembers this little guy? A year and a half ago this was Cannon... in dire need of blood on the left and post blood transfusion on the right - ON THE SAME DAY!​


​We will never forget the hundreds, if not thousands of people who donated around the world in honor of Cannon. Blood donations are extremely important to us at CKc... our nation is still in a critical shortage and YOUR blood could save the life of another.


Our friends at SWEAT located in College Park are hosting a blood drive this Saturday, ​February 28th from 6:30 - 11:30am. Every donor will receive a free movie ticket and wellness checkup. SWEAT has supported CKc in the past and we would love to see their mobile unit full of donors! You can schedule an appointment in advance at www.oneblood.org with sponsor code 24769. Reservations are not required... just go and donate! Their address is 727 Smith Street, 32804.


We will also have a mobile unit available at our huge block party on April 19th. Details are forthcoming... it's going to be amazing!​


Thanks so much for honoring Cannon and all of the valiant pediatric fighters and angels who have received blood transfusions. This is your chance to make a difference!​
