MRASA The Motorcycle Riders Association of South Australia
Bike at Toy Run 2011
MRASA Blood Run
  Resurrected - Saturday April 23 2011 saw 12 participants and 10 donors in the inaugural Blood Run Resurrected. The ride departed from Kurralta Park Shopping Centre and travelled to the Pirie St Blood Bank.

Being a donor also makes you eligible for the MRA blood donor's badge. If you wish to participate in future runs please contact the Blood Run Coordinator (Cathy) on 0408 853 380, as the Blood Bank needs to be advised so they can prepare for the number of donors. Even if you are unable to donate, come along and support us, as you still may help by providing a pillion seat for donors who cannot ride. Those unable to donate often join the ride and leave as the group enter the donation centre. Ride dates are published below, please arrive up to 30 minutes prior to departure time.

There are 4 events per year, one every 3 months which is the time span for whole blood donations.
