U-M's largest life-saving donation drive

Be a Hero will be returning to the Big House on Sunday, November 21! Join us for our largest event at the Michigan Stadium. Blood donors are encouraged to donate blood at the biggest blood drive on the University of Michigan campus. Blood donations will count towards the Blood Battle competition against OSU. Click here to avoid the wait and make an appointment ahead of time. Attendees also have the opportunity to join the organ donor registry or be screened as a bone marrow donor. There will be entertainment, activities, giveaways, special guests, and snacks throughout the day. More information coming soon. 

Can't make it to Be a Hero? Schedule a blood drive appointment between 10/27/2021 and 11/24/2021 to help us beat OSU in the annual Blood Battle competition! Visit www.redcrossblood.org and enter promo code "goblue."

*At bone marrow donor registry drives, we focus on recruiting new registry members ages 18 to 44. This is based on medical research that shows younger donors are best for patients and provide the greatest chance for transplant success. Because of this, doctors request donors in the 18 to 44 age group over 90% of the time.

If you are between the ages of 45 and 60 and want to join the bone marrow registry, you must do so online. You will be asked to make a $100 payment to cover the cost to join.
