Coffee Memorial Blood Center - Larry Frederick, Ride for Life

Amarillo, TX - A father and daughter team pedaling their way across America to raise awareness about donating blood made a stop in Amarillo.

Larry Frederick and his daughter were escorted into Amarillo today by Amarillo Police officers.

The two are biking across the country to show people why donating blood is important.

After an accident, Frederick received over 100 units of blood from complete strangers, saving his life.

"My story is unique, but it is not unique because there are thousands of stories...and hundreds of stories locally that of recipients that have received the gift of life, so giving blood really saves lives and it also saves families," said Frederick.
