Annual Blood Battle with Ohio State runs through Nov. 27

The 32nd annual Blood Battle, which pits U-M against Ohio State University in a blood-donation competition, begins Monday and runs through Nov. 27.

In an email to the campus community, Vice President for Student Affairs E. Royster Harper and the 2013 Blood Battle Executive Team said that with blood-supply reserves at their lowest levels in 15 years, the American Red Cross needs donors of all blood types, especially those with an Rh-negative factor.

“The competition extends the rivalry beyond the field to spur students, faculty and staff to save lives. Over the past 31 years, the University of Michigan has collected over 106,000 pints of blood during the annual Blood Battle competition. This has the potential to positively impact up to three times as many patients in need,” the email stated.

Participants may sign up by going to the American Red Cross website and using the sponsor code "goblue" to view all of the blood drives in the Ann Arbor area.

“We want to acknowledge that, due to blood donation eligibility requirements set by the Food and Drug Administration, not everyone will be able to donate. There are other ways to raise awareness of the need for blood donation, and we encourage everyone to be supportive in any way that you can,” the email stated.
