Be a Hero at the Big House

Join us for our largest event at the Michigan Stadium. Blood donors are encouraged to donate blood at the biggest blood drive in Southeast Michigan. Blood donations will count towards the Blood Battle competition against OSU. 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. 

Make an appointment to donate blood at Walk-ins will be accepted but we encourage you to skip the wait by making an appointment ahead of time and completing your Rapid Pass before the appointment.
