blood donations

French duo push Kiwi cyclists for more blood

From Paul Hayes, NZ Blood Service:

Two French cyclists have travelled more than 18,000 kilometres around the world to encourage more New Zealanders to "get on their bike" and donate blood.

Global blood donation ambassadors Julien Leblay and Marion Dumas will begin their final leg of a 20-month cycle journey to promote blood donation in Dunedin on Thursday (5 January). They will then cycle the South and North Islands before concluding their 21,000 kilometre, half-world tour in Auckland in February.
