Elite Gymnastics Academy partners with the American Red Cross

February 4, 2012 (El Cajon) -- Elite Gymnastics Academy, along with the American Red Cross, is hosting a blood drive on Thursday, February 16th, from 1:00 pm – 7:00 pm at Elite Gymnastics Academy, 1817 John Towers Avenue in El Cajon.



The “Give Love, Give Blood” Blood Drive participants will receive a Free Appetizer Coupon from Mimi’s Café & may enter a regional drawing for a spa package! Also any students 17 over will receive 10 hours of community service for their donation but you must make an appointment.

“Elite Gymnastics Academy is thrilled to sponsor this event, and we’d love to blast past our goal of 30 pints,” said Paula McCalester, Owner of Elite Gymnastics Academy.  Elite Gymnastics Academy is always looking for ways to make our mark in East County and give back to the communities that support us.  From participating in local school fundraising to community donations our facility is eager to make an impact.  “The sky is the limit with our staff, and families,” said Paula McCalester, “we are constantly looking at ways to support our community and give back.”
To keep pace with the rising demand for blood, the Red Cross is asking everyone to roll up their sleeves and give the gift of life.  The American Red Cross is hoping to build up a supply of blood to help safeguard against a shortage.
Most healthy people who are at least 17 years old and weigh 100 pounds or more are eligible to donate every 56 days.  Photo identification is required by the Red Cross.  To make an appointment for The Elite Gymnastics Academy’s blood drive on Thursday, February 16th, please call Carina (619) 259-1622 or you may sign up online at www.redcrossblood.org, Code: EliteAca.  Walk-ins are welcome.
