Ride 2 Save – Annual Ride

giveblood

This is the second year running for the Ride 2 Save event brought by Dar Al Shifaa & BMW Motorcycle Club. We went last year to the event with over 150 riders of different kinds donating blood and saving many lives. I know that I will be attending the event as last year, hopefully even more riders will show up. Donating blood is a very important issue in Kuwait as not every blood type is readily available and many lives depend on the availability of blood at the blood bank. I hope many people join this event this coming Friday, and looking for a big turnout.

Date: Friday 20th November
Meeting: SHIIK Resort parking On Gulf Rd Bedi3
Timing:

  • 2.30 pm Start of Registration & Blood Test
  • 4:00 pm police escort from the resort To Hospital

The Thalassemia group also will be there to welcome all bikers and thank them for saving their lives by donating blood @ Dar Alshifa hospital all donors will donate from 4.30 to 7.00 pm and Beverages will be served @ Parking of SHIIK then the same @ Dar Alshifa Hospital

A guy who is just trying to enjoy life!

    Dear All,

    On behave of the Kuwait BMW Motorcycle Club i would like to thank all the participants & collaborators,, Dar El Shifa, The Blood Bank, & Schik Resort. This year the event was much better organized with a bigger turn out ,,,,, however the number of actual Doners was 50% (Fifty) Less than last year. This is indeed very disappointing to say the least.One of the reasons for this is the misunderstanding that the blood was collected for Dar El Shifa Hospital ,,, which is not TRUE. In Kuwait , by Law only the Official Blood Bank is authorized to collect,store & distribute blood in Kuwait. Where it is collected is irrelevent ,. Could be a Hospital,A Bank or just any other location. This year the blood was specifically was collected for the Thelassemia patients.
    I hope next time our fellow bikers get more positive towards their social responsibilty to help change the general immage of the public from one of irresponsible to responsible citizens.
    With each bag of Blood collected , you missed the chance to save 3 lives !!
    Thank you all
