The Blood Battle is ON!

This blood battle has been going since 1982, and we’re not going to let #TTUN win this year. The Ohio State University has what it takes to beat University of Michigan in a challenge that will truly show we’re out for blood. During this month-long ‘blood battle’, we must collect more blood donations than Michigan in order to win.

Roll up your sleeve to show what colors you bleed – give blood with your fellow Buckeyes and Versiti Blood Center of Ohio to show those Wolverines we’re not to be messed with. We need to reach 2,000 donations before they do!

The battle runs from October 30-November 27.

While supplies last, all presenting donors to receive commemorative blood battle T-shirt and a chance to win other great prizes. Plus, you will be entered for a chance to win a pair of tickets to the Ohio State vs Michigan game with a 1 night hotel accommodation.

Bring a buddy to donate with you and receive double entries for the sweepstakes.
