Gift of Life Marathon

Savings lives and setting records while doing it.

For most Americans, giving blood is a once-in-a-while thing, if they even do it all. Barely 5% of Americans donate blood on a regular basis. But the Vermonters in the Rutland area are no ordinary Americans. Nearly 20% of adults in Rutland donate blood regularly. This is due, in part, to the Gift-of-Life Marathon created by CVPS in 2003. In 2011, it became the second-largest community blood drive in U.S. history.

Employee blood drives have been a part of the routine at GMP for years. The idea for the Gift-of-Life Marathon came out of this routine. While it started out small, the event quickly broke county, state, regional, and New England records, becoming a central focus of the greater Rutland community in recent years. It even prompted a New York filmmaker to cast his lens on Rutland, resulting in the documentary, “The Blood in This Town.”

Our employees organize and promote the event with the help of radio partner WJJR. Many of our coworkers donate blood or help run the event, which has been described as a giant block party where people also donate blood. In 2012, the Red Cross collected 1,955 pints at the Gift-of-Life Marathon, just shy of the national record of 1969. On December 17, 2013 Rutland broke for the national record for a single day blood drive. To learn more, check out our Gift-of-Life Marathon web page.
