PSU Vs. MSU Blood Drive Challenge

October 30, 2017 - November 16, 2017

This year marks the 24th Annual Penn State vs. Michigan State Blood Donor Challenge! The challenge runs from October 30th to November 17th on both Penn State and Michigan State campuses. (However, the last blood drive date at Penn State is November 16)

The Challenge puts Penn State and Michigan State to the test as they battle to see who can collect more blood! Each university set a goal to collect 1,100 units of blood and the university that collects the most blood wins!

The Challenge is also extremely important to the region’s blood supply as we head into the holiday season when blood donations tend to decline.

Appointments are highly recommended, but walk-ins will be accommodated if possible. Penn State students, faculty/staff, fans, alumni, parents, etc. are all welcomed to participate! All presenting donors will receive the official 2017 Challenge t-shirt (while supplies last), which was designed by a Penn State Student!

Appointments to give blood can be made by using the Red Cross Blood Donor App, visiting redcrossblood.org or calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767)
