2019 We Challenge You Competition

January 21 - February 27

To sign up to donate blood at any of our drives visit, www.redcrossblood.org and use the sponsor code: goblue. You will need to create an account to make an appointment.


The Red Cross is once again experiencing blood and platelet donation levels that are much lower than expected.

Your help is especially needed now. Red Cross officials have issued an emergency request for blood and platelet donations. Donors of all blood types are encouraged to give, especially types O negative, A negative and B negative. Appeals to the public have provided a temporary stopgap, but have not eliminated the need. The situation is critical, and there is an ongoing emergency need for donors. Please donate if you are eligible, even if you never have before. It is a very rewarding experience and you can save up to three lives every time you donate.

Welcome to Blood Battle at the University of Michigan!

Blood Battle is an annual blood drive competition between Ohio State and the University of Michigan that takes place in the weeks leading up to the Game. In addition, we arrange an annual competition every winter against other rival schools. This year we will be competing against Michigan State, Notre Dame, Penn State, and Oakland University.

The final score of the 2018 Blood Battle competition was:


We won the fall competition this year, and we saved thousands of lives. Thanks to everybody who helped to make this year's Blood Battle a success! We have now beaten OSU 7 out of the past 10 years! We hope to come back and win again next fall, but we need your help!

In the winter, we will compete against Michigan State, Notre Dame, Penn State and Oakland University in the 2019 We Challenge You Blood Drive Competition. We are looking forward to the first ever We Challenge You Blood Drive Competition and are looking to dominate our rivals!
