About

Memorial Blood Centers’ Battle of the Badges challenges fire and police departments from across the metropolitan area in a friendly competition to save and sustain lives through blood donation.

In November 2000, Edina Police Officer Mike Blood was shot multiple times at close range by a bank robber with an assault rifle. He needed 19 operations and 120 units of blood and spent a year in the hospital. Thanks to a supply of blood donated by others, he had a chance to recover.

To learn more about Mike and how donated blood saved his life, go to www.mbc.org/Stories/Recipients/Mike.
