CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — The annual Boots and Badges competition where area fire and law enforcement agencies host blood drives continues across the Coastal Bend.

And to take the competition up a notch, both interim Corpus Christi Police Chief David Blackmon and Fire Chief Robert Rocha donated blood at the Coastal Bend Blood Center this morning.

The chiefs are asking others to donate blood and cast their votes for Team Boots or Team Badges at Whataburger Field during a blood drive tonight that will continue from 3:30 p.m. to 7 p.m.

The competition will run through July 31.

Donors will receive a pair of Hooks tickets and a free T-shirt. The winners of this two-week challenge will receive a trophy and the ultimate bragging rights.
