Riley: Play Hockey, Give Blood!


The Riley hockey team hosted a blood drive at the Compton Family Ice Arena. The guys not only worked, but donated as well. One of the hockey mom's is a former trauma nurse and stressed the importance of donation.  She says 3-in-4 people will need blood in their life, but only 1-in-4 will actually donate. 

Jill Maddox is a hockey mom and a nurse practioner, she says blood donation is really important and they thought it was a good idea to get the players and parents involved.  They used a play on words, "Play hockey, give blood."  Riley player, Jack Keultjez says it feels good to help out the community.
