Be a Hero at the Big House
Be a Hero will be returning to the Big House on Sunday, November 21st! Join us for our largest event at the Michigan Stadium. Blood donors are encouraged to donate blood at the biggest blood drive on the University of Michigan campus. Blood donations will count towards the Blood Battle competition against OSU. Click here to avoid the wait and make an appointment ahead of time. Attendees also have the opportunity to join the organ donor registry or be screened as a bone marrow donor. There will be entertainment, activities, giveaways, special guests, and snacks throughout the day. More information coming soon.
Interested in volunteering? We need a bunch of volunteers to help pull this event off! We're asking for help both the day of the event and the day before to help load-in. Click the sign-up links below to see how you can help!
In alignment with Michigan Medicine's policy, all Michigan Medicine volunteers must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 in order to volunteer. To be considered fully vaccinated, you must be at least two weeks post completion of two doses of the Moderna or Pfizer vaccines, or a single dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. For information on vaccines and where to access them, click here.
- If you are a University of Michigan student, faculty, or staff member and have already verified your vaccine with the institution, please email a screenshot of your ResponsiBLUE screen showing that your vaccine has been “Completed” to Megan Podschlne at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have not already done so.
- For all other volunteers, please submit your vaccine information if you have not already done so, including a picture of your vaccine card, by clicking here. If you have been partially vaccinated (i.e., received only 1 dose in a 2 dose series), please wait to submit this form until you have received all vaccine doses.
- If you are not able to submit your information through the survey, please let us know.
Once you submit the form, vaccine information will be reviewed within the next 7 business days. If your vaccine series is not authorized by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or the World Health Organization (WHO), you will not be considered fully vaccinated under U-M policy. To be considered fully vaccinated you must have received all doses of the vaccine at least 2 weeks ago.
