Rutland 'Gift of Life' organizer honored for work

Rutland, Vermont - October 26, 2010

A Vermonter will receive a big award tomorrow for his efforts to save lives.

The American Red Cross is honoring Steve Costello, the organizer of Rutland's 'Gift of Life' Marathon.

The annual blood drive has become one of the largest in the country. More than 1,000 pints of blood were collected at the event last year.

Costello is also the director of public affairs at Central Vermont Public Service and is one of only seven people that will be honored by the national organization at a ceremony tomorrow.
