For the third season the Kitchener Rangers and the Guelph Storm are facing off to save lives! Today marks the start of the Rangers vs. Storm Blood Donor Challenge.

The Challenge is a friendly competition that encourages the teams’ staff, players, sponsors and fans to donate blood at their local Canadian Blood Services donor clinic. This season the two teams have pledge 1,000 units of blood and are in contention to see who can get the most new blood donors into local clinics.
