Spartans Still Ahead in MSU/PSU Blood Challenge!

November 16, 2011




Eligible donors can still come out today and tomorrow to help the Spartans maintain their lead against the Nittany Lions in the MSU-PSU blood challenge. Remember, Penn State  typically ramps up their game with two large blood drives at the end of the challenge and manage to pull out wins. 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.”  The challenge runs through November 17 on campus and in the Lansing Donor Center. Check out for a list of remaining blood drives and come out to show your Spartan pride.


MSU: 1582                                              Penn State: 1331


MSU is holding two blood drives today, Wednesday: Wilson Hall 9am - 8:45pm and Shaw Hall 11am - 4:45pm.
