Ohio State University vs. University of Michigan
Students and fans of Ohio State University (OSU) and the University of Michigan (UM) are gearing up for their annual Blood Battle. The archrivals have partnered with the Red Cross since 1981 to see which university’s supporters can bring in the most blood donations.
If you bleed scarlet and gray, or maize and blue, show it by donating blood through the American Red Cross.
Come to give blood at any blood drive in the Western Lake Erie Region from October 19 - November 14 and you can enter to win a pair of tickets to the OSU vs. UM football game on November 21, 2009!
The Blood Battle generates thousands of pints of donated blood for the American Red Cross every year, which provides vital support for patients who need blood transfusions to help them through injury and illness.
“This promotion provides an important boost for the blood supply as the Thanksgiving holiday approaches. And during the busy holiday season it’s important not to forget the constant need for volunteer blood donors,” said Annie Marckel, Communications Manager for the American Red Cross Western Lake Erie Blood Services Region.
When donors come to give blood they will receive a special Blood Battle window cling.
