Spartans still ahead on final day of challenge!




Today is the last day of the 18th Annual MSU-PSU Blood Challenge.  While the Spartans still have the lead, the Nittany Lions are notorious for pulling out a last-minute win.  Show your Spartan pride and support the Red Cross by coming out to donate today at the Lansing Donor Center or on MSU's campus.  With the help of many local businesses this year, everyone who comes out to donate during the challenge has a chance to win a number of great prizes.  Each presenting donor will also receive a special Red Cross t-shirt stating “Bleed Green.  Donate Red.” Check out for a list of remaining blood drives and come out to show your Spartan pride.
