Ron Dunkley blood drive returns Dec. 4

The annual Ron Dunkley Blood Drive returns to the City of Langley Fire Hall on Sunday, Dec. 4 from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

The annual Ron Dunkley Blood Drive returns to the City of Langley Fire Hall on Sunday, Dec. 4 from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Spearheaded by Langley City firefighter Rob Rabby in partnership with the Ron Dunkley Memorial Society, the campaign is done in memory of Ron Dunkley, who was also a Langley City firefighter.

Dunkley died in a Seattle hospital in January of 2011, two months after being struck by a train in the U.S. city where he’d travelled to attend a football game.

“It was the gift of hundreds of bags of donated blood that gave us 60 wonderful days with our son, which we would not have had without the blood donations, as it was the blood that kept him alive for that time,” Dunkley’s mother, Sandy, said in an email to the Times.

Participants in the blood drive must be at least 17 years of age, generally in good health and feeling well.

The City of Langley fire hall is located at 5785 203 St.
