On 3 December, Sysmex Europe GmbH and Sysmex Deutschland GmbH hosted a blood donation and charity event to give back to society. “Be a Hero” was the motto of the event, which showed a large turnout. Nearly 70 employees came to show their eagerness to be a hero and donate blood. 13 participants had their stem cells typed and 28 participants were first time donators.
Those who were unable or preferred not to donate blood had the chance to participate in a sport activity. They could exercise for five minutes on three separate sport stations, totalling a maximum of 15 minutes. Sysmex will donate the raised money to the Norderstedter Tafel. Close to 50 employees took part in the sport event.
The event was supported enthusiastically by Deutsches Rotes Kreuz, who organised the donation process. The next opportunity for Sysmex employees and neighbouring partners to be a hero will be in June.
