Dozens of people lined up to help an FSU employee critically injured in a motorcycle wreck.

The rain did not put a damper on a campus blood drive for Dan Bulecza.

Bulecza works as a first responder on campus.

He was hurt in a crash February 2nd and is still in Intensive Care.

Co-workers and students waited beneath tents for their chance to donate blood.

Bulecza's son was very moved by the turnout.

"I've been getting a lot of random messages from people who know my dad. They just want to help, so this is the best way we figured out they could help, because he did go through a lot of blood and we just want to refill what we used," Shane Bulecza said.

Florida State University Health Services Release

A Southeastern Community Blood Services bloodmobile will be parked next to University Health Services and Dunlap Student Success Center on the corner of Woodward Ave. and Learning Way for a blood drive in behalf of FSU employee Dan Bulecza on Feb. 12 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The blood drive will give FSU faculty, staff and students an opportunity to support FSU First Responder Unit Director Dan Bulecza, who sustained serious injuries in a motorcycle accident on February 2nd, 2013. "We can all help Dan by giving blood. We are praying for a complete recovery and to assist his family," says Lesley Sacher, Director of University Health Services.

Donors should be in good health with no cold or flu symptoms. They must eat well prior to donation, drink fluids and present photo identification at the time of donation.

The process takes about an hour. Each blood donor will receive a voucher for a FREE MOVIE TICKET in addition to a WELLNESS CHECKUP that includes blood pressure reading, iron count and cholesterol screening.
