Jan 21, 2009  

Ohio University students, faculty and staff have never been shy about rolling up their sleeves to support the American Red Cross blood program. Now, a Blood Battle involving Ohio and Miami universities will give Bobcats an opportunity to prove they bleed green and white.

The schools will host two large blood drives in hopes of attracting a total of 400 donors -- 100 from each event.

The first of two drives on the Athens campus is set for 1 to 8 p.m. Monday, Jan. 26, at the Ping Student Recreation Center. It co-sponsored by Community Health Programs? ComCorps in the College of Osteopathic Medicine and Student Senate.

The second drive will be from noon to 7 p.m. Monday, Feb. 16, at Baker University Center. The co-sponsors are Ohio Athletics and Student Senate.

To schedule an appointment to donate blood, call 1-800-GIVE-LIFE or visit www.BloodSavesLives.org for information. Blood donors must be at least 17 years of age, weigh a minimum of 110 pounds and be in good general health. All donors must present positive identification at the time of the donation.
