From 1 June – 31 August, the Parramatta Eels are taking part in the Battle of the West Blood Challenge.

Competition will be fierce with the Parramatta Eels, Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs, Penrith Panthers and Wests Tigers supporters battling it out off the field to save the most lives!

Your blood and plasma donations help Australians when they need it most. Some need it to get through cancer or a difficult pregnancy. Others have medical conditions which mean they need blood products regularly to stay healthy.
