Battle of the Badges is a friendly competition between Catoosa County Sheriff Gary Sisk and Walker County Sheriff Steve Wilson, in partnership with Blood Assurance. Wilson and Sisk are both members of the Blood Assurance North Georgia Advisory Board, and donated blood will help maintain an adequate supply of blood for use by hospitals in the Blood Assurance service area.

Each donation can save up to three lives. Due to the pandemic, blood donations are low, and there is a critical need for blood of all types.

Last year, Walker County won a close victory by one donated unit of blood; donors in Catoosa and Walker counties contributed 171 blood units during that event, which benefited more than 500 people in regional health care facilities.
