NAPERVILLE, Ill. (WLS) -- The organizers of a weekend blood drive have big goals: They hope to set a new record in Illinois for a single-day, single-location blood drive.

The above video is from a previous report.

It's the fourth annual A Pint For Kim Blood Drive.

The event is named in honor of Kim Sandford, a Naperville mother who died of cancer. She needed more than 40 transfusions during her battle.

The blood drive is her family's way of giving back.
