The Bloodmobile will be in the parking lot of the Owensboro Catholic Elementary K-3 Campus for the Annual Kate Hayden Memorial Blood Drive on Friday September 3, 2021 from 9AM-1PM. Please come honor Kate’s memory and celebrate her 23rd birthday by donating blood if you are able; you may save a life!
Donors will receive a free t-shirt.
If you are unable to donate blood, you are still welcome to come share your memories and have a cupcake. On July 29, 2006, Kate was killed in a car accident while going on vacation. She would have entered 2nd grade that fall at the K-3 campus. She is the daughter of Glenn and Sheila Calhoun; the sister Ashley (Calhoun) Hancock (OCHS 2003), Wesley Calhoun (OCHS 2006), Adam Hayden (OCHS 2015), Connor Calhoun (Senior at OCHS campus), and Grace Calhoun (8th grader at OCMS campus). If you are unable to come during the times of the blood drive, you can go WKRBC on Old Hartford Rd and mention that it is in honor of Kate.
Thanks to all of our donors and to the Owensboro Catholic Schools for always supporting this blood drive and honoring Kate.
