Bloody well done

BC Bloodmobile collects 46 units of blood at BCRTC’s SkyTrain Operations and Maintenance Centre.

  • May. 6, 2012 4:00 p.m.

BC Rapid Transit Company (BCRTC), the operators of SkyTrain’s Expo and Millennium Lines, and Canadian Blood Services, B.C. & Yukon, have set a new record for units of blood collected in the BC Bloodmobile in one day – by beating their former record-setting donation.

Forty-six units of blood were collected at BCRTC’s SkyTrain Operations and Maintenance Centre on April 19, breaking the old BC Bloodmobile record of 45 units which SkyTrain employees set on Dec. 22, 2011.

The 46 units of blood donated will improve the lives of 138 people.
