Nine Cities Blood Challenge kicks off at KESQ & CBS Local 2 studios, exceeds goal

Each summer, the Coachella Valley experiences a population exodus, and along with it, a drop in potential blood donors. The local population drops by 30 percent in the summer months, and the remaining Coachella Valley residents need to chip in wholeheartedly to address the blood shortage that comes along with the drop.

The Nine Cities challenge kicked off right here at the KESQ News Channel 3 & CBS Local 2 studios in Thousand Palms. The event ran from 11AM – 4PM at 31276 Dunham Way, Thousand Palms, CA.

The day’s goal was 26 units, 30 units in total were donated!
