UM vs MSU Winter Blood Battle!

By Lynn McCain | February 16 2021

The Annual Winter Blood Battle has begun! This year our opponent is Michigan State University.  Our goal:  To collect more pints of blood donated between February 10 and February 28, 2021, than MSU.  All blood donors who register to donate as part of our U-M BB Team, will receive a Blood Battle T-shirt, a coupon for Washtenaw Dairy (while supplies last), and be entered into a raffle for gift cards to local business along with other great prizes.  This is a win-win for you and the patients who receive your donated blood products.  Let's make this a win-win-win as we beat MSU!
