FORT COLLINS, Colo. – The Border War between Colorado State and Wyoming isn’t simply limited to the football field or volleyball court.

Colorado State’s athletic department and Poudre Valley Health Services (PVHS) are teaming together for the six annual Border War Blood Drive on Tuesday, Nov. 13.

From 8 a.m.-4 p.m., the donation center will be located in Newsom Hall on the CSU campus, with all donations accepted as walk-in only.

The friendly Border War began six years ago as a competition between Colorado State and Wyoming, adding to an already healthy rivalry to promote an important initiative.

PVHS  squares off against Wyoming’s United Blood Service to see which organization can receive the most blood donations.

The drive comes at a time of year when blood donations are historically low, and the annual competition can mean the difference between life and death for accident victims.

PVHS and CSU have won the Border War Blood Drive three of the last four years, and have been awarded the traveling trophy, the bronze heart.

The on-campus blood drive has annually produced more than 90 donations, but this year PVHS is hoping to exceed 100 donations. All donations received will help CSU and PVHS bring back the bronze heart for a fourth year!

Snacks and a free t-shirt will be available for donors while supplies last. All students, staff, faculty and community members are invited to donate pending a health-risk assessment administered at the donation center.
