This November marks the 31st annual Blood Battle between the University of Michigan and Ohio State University. This competition extends the athletic rivalry beyond the field, as students, faculty and staff donate pints of blood to save lives. This year, the competition begins on Nov.1 and ends on Nov. 16, and we are hoping to exceed last year's tremendous success.
You can make a difference! One donation has the potential to save up to three lives. During last year's Blood Battle victory over Ohio State, the Wolverines collected 2,628 pints, and, in total, enough blood was collected to possibly benefit over 15,000 people.
