Blood drive remembering 9/11 held at Fenway
BOSTON (WHDH) -- A September 11th Day of Remembrance Blood Drive is underway at Fenway Park Tuesday.
It is an annual event, more than 1000 people showed up to in 2011.
The Red Cross said it's a way to honor those who died in the 9/11 attacks, and to save the lives of others.
"To be able to come to Fenway Park, and talk to the donors who are out doing something good in memory of those who can't give blood anymore - it's really something that I look forward to on September 11th, and now as a board member for blood services it's something that I hold close to my heart," said board member Christie Coombs who lost her husband on 9/11.
Fenway Park opened at 6 a.m. Tuesday morning for the Day of Remembrance Blood Drive and will stay open until noon.
