State College, Centre County, Pa. - Penn State is hosting its 24th Annual Blood Donor Challenge against Michigan State from October 30 through November 17.
Both universities compete to collect blood, each setting a goal for 1,100 units. Whoever gets the most wins!
The event, taking place at both campuses, is due to a lack of blood supply and donations in the region during the holiday season.
Appointments are highly recommended, but walk-ins are welcome. All donors will receive a 2017 Challenge t-shirt designed by a current PSU student.
To make an appointment, download the Red Cross Blood Donor App, visit redcrossblood.org or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).
More information can be found by contacting Melissa Wolf at Melissa.Wolf@redcross.org or by calling 814-659-5139.
