Reno-Sparks ​Battle of the Badges

There is an emergency need for blood this summer. You can help end the blood shortage by giving blood at the annual Reno-Sparks Battle of the Badges, a friendly competition of badge carrying personnel.

At this special blood drive, badge carrying personnel and community members give blood on behalf of their favorite agency to see who can bring in the most blood donors. Everyone wins when patients get the lifesaving blood transfusions they need. 

Blood donors will receive an exclusive blood drive T-shirt, while supplies last. 

Donors who give blood through Aug. 31, 2023, will receive enough bonus points in their online donor accounts to redeem for a cool summer $10 gift card through Vitalant’s donor recognition program. Donors must first have an account and be opted in to the recognition program prior to donating to receive points. For more information, visit

Donors who give blood through Aug. 31, 2023, will also have the chance to win 1 of 5 $5,000 prepaid gift cards for back-to-school tech items or to deck out the home/office (computer/laptop, TV, tablet, headphones, etc.). Prepaid gift cards may be used wherever they are accepted. For details, visit
