Penn State & Michigan State Team Up For 24th Annual Blood Donor Challenge

Penn State and Michigan State are once again teaming up for the 24th Annual Blood Donor Challenge. This year, the challenge began October 30 and will run through November 17 on both campuses. However, the last day to actually give blood here at Penn State is November 16.

Each year, the American Red Cross sponsors and runs the Blood Donor Challenge. Each university has a set goal of 1,100 units of blood. At the end of the challenge, the university that collects the most blood wins. Every donor will receive an official 2017 Challenge t-shirt designed by a Penn State student.

If you’re interested in participating, here are Penn State’s future locations and times for the challenge:

  • November 1 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. — HUB
