Highlands Ranch center celebrates 50-gallon donor

 

Posted on 01/27/2017

Every two weeks, Hans Konstabel makes the trip from his Englewood home to Bonfils' Highlands Ranch Community Donor Center to donate platelets. He's made the trip so often, he's now joined an elite group of 17 active Bonfils blood donors who have topped the 50-gallon milestone.

Bonfils staff celebrated his 401st donation on Monday. Hans says it's become a good habit he doesn't plan to break anytime soon.

"I always said when I hit 50 I'll go for 60," Hans said. "I'll keep doing it until they tell me I can't anymore."

Whether it's your first donation or your 400th, every single time you give blood you can save or enhance the lives of up to three patients in Colorado and beyond.

Make an appointment or walk-in to any of Bonfils' eight community donor centers or multiple daily mobile blood drives across Colorado. You're just our type.
