Two universities have put their rivalry towards a good cause. Utah State University and Weber State University are in a “blood battle” for which school can donate the most blood between Aug. 30 and Sept. 3. It will be open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. at each university campus.
The national blood shortage will not stop this tradition. This is the 18th annual blood battle between the two universities. Since 2004, this event has collected over 20,800 blood donations and saved countless lives. The university that wins the Blood Battle will be awarded the Blood Battle Trophy that is displayed at their campus for the year.
During the USU vs. WSU Blood Battle, all presenting donors will receive a Blood Battle T-shirt, while supplies last. To make an appointment, download the Red Cross Blood Donor App, visit RedCrossBlood.org or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767), and use the sponsor code for your favorite university– BleedBlue or BleedPurple
