3rd Annual Blood Drive to Honor Aaron Pearson
March 20 @ 8:00 AM - 6:00 PM
Come show your support for local law enforcement at our third annual Blood Drive to Honor Aaron Pearson! This event takes place only at CBCO’s Thomson Donor Center in Springfield, Missouri, on Friday, March 20, 2020, from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. All successful donors will receive a T-shirt designed for this event (while supplies last).
Officer Pearson was on duty with the Springfield Police Department when he was shot in the head January 26, 2015. He was rushed to Mercy Hospital where he underwent emergency surgery, requiring 20 units of blood. That blood was available thanks to generous CBCO donors.
“I like to imagine the donors huddled around Aaron, giving him their blood,” said his wife Amanda. “I can just imagine him lying there and 20 people circled around him, giving. That’s pretty powerful because they had no idea who he is or where it’s going, but they give anyway.”
You can make a difference in someone’s life, just like those 20 donors made a difference for an injured young father, husband, and law enforcement officer.
