Support Bonfils Blood Center

Thank you for supporting the Firecracker 5K! Donating blood is one of the easiest ways to volunteer and give back to your community, and healthy people ages 16 and above are just Bonfils Blood Center’s type. While donations dip as much as 20 percent during the summer, the need for blood remains constant. Visit one of Bonfils’ many donor centers or mobile blood drives, including our new Southwest Littleton donor center located at Belleview and Wadsworth next to Club U.S.A., to help ensure a safe and ready blood supply. Appointments available. Walk-ins welcome!

It takes all types to maintain an adequate blood supply and less than an hour to help as many as three patients in need. Visit or call 303.363.2300 to join our lifesaving cause today!
