CORPUS CHRISTI - The 11th Annual Guns and Hoses Blood Drive Challenge is officially underway.
For the month of July, law enforcement agencies will be competing against firefighting agencies to see which agency can raise the most blood donations.
Any one who donates blood will have the option of crediting their donation toward either police of firefighters.
Leticia Mondragon with the Coastal Bend Blood Center said, "Actually in the past few years the Corpus Christi Fire Department or the fire fighting agencies have won the past few years. So I know its going to be a tough competition. But in everyone's eyes they are all heros."
People who donate blood will be given a baseball themed t-shirt and two tickets to a Corpus Christi Hooks Game.
