64-year-old Mark Reimert of Bernville, Pennsylvania, had just one thing to say after finishing his most recent blood donation – “Beat my 100 gallons.”
That’s right. Through the years, Mark has donated a whopping 100 gallons of blood.
To celebrate the milestone, his local blood center presented Mark with a trophy featuring a blown-glass blood droplet. He and other staff members also shared a cake with a big “100” on the frosting to help him celebrate.
Mark has been donating since the late 1970s, once every two or three weeks. The limit of 24 donations a year is all that holds him back. He'd give more if he could.
And through the years, he's literally saved thousands of lives. (Reading Eagle)
