The Central Blood Bank will hold a blood drive Wednesday in honor of Colin Albright, the bicyclist who lost more than a third of his blood after being attacked on the South Side last month.

The blood drive will be held from 1 to 7 p.m. Oct. 17 at the Hot Metal Bridge Faith Community, 2700 Jane St. Donors can register online at centralbloodbank.org using the sponsor code ZRTN0968 or call 412-209-7067 to make an appointment. Walk-ins are welcome, although those donors may have longer to wait, said blood bank spokeswoman Caitlyn Doyle.

Albright was slashed and stabbed repeatedly by an unknown assailant while he was walking his bike up the city steps near Josephine Street on Sept. 5. The incident remains under investigation.

Albright required several blood transfusions. His church scheduled the blood drive in his honor to help replenish the community blood supply that helped him when he needed it, Doyle said.
