BLEED BLUE to support Most Valuable Patients and be selected Donor of the Game

Greater Alleghenies Blood Services Region

Donate blood with the American Red Cross and Penn State Athletics this autumn and you could score big as a “Bleed Blue Donor of the Game.”

Through November 15, when members of Nittany Nation come in to donate blood at designated Bleed Blue blood drives, they are automatically entered in a drawing for an Unrivaled Donor of the Game package at one of four Penn State home games:

  • September 27 – Northwestern – two Donor of the Game packages
  • October 25 – Ohio State– two Donor of the Game packages
  • November 1 – Maryland – two Donor of the Game package
  • November 29 – Michigan State – one Donor of the Game packages
     

Included in each Donor of the Game package:

  • Two tickets to the Penn State football game
  • Two pre-game hospitality passes
  • Reserved parking pass
  • A sideline visit during the game; participants must be age 16 or older
  • Radio recognition during the Pre-Game Show portion of the statewide game broadcast
  • Beaver Stadium video board recognition
  • After the game, the Donor of the Game photo will be posted on redcrossblood.org/BleedBlue.

 Blood donations will help to save the lives of our M.V.P.s or Most Valuable Patients, like Drue Storm, who was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) at age 2. ALL is a type of cancer in which leukemic cells deplete healthy cells in the body. Since being diagnosed in November 2011, Drue has received blood and platelets a total of eight times.

Joe Ann Storm, Drue’s mother, says blood donations are one of the reasons for Drue’s survival throughout his fight with cancer. “Drue needed this life source replenished not only to live, but also to get strong enough to fight this long three-year battle,” she says.

This fall, blood donors who help to save a life will be entered to be chosen as Donor of the Game and have an Unrivaled Penn State football experience.

Appointments for this blood drive are strongly encouraged. Click or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).
