FORT COLLINS, Colo. – Ram’s fans are encouraged to come out and give to a great cause by donating blood for the annual Border War Blood Drive. Fans will be given the chance to come out and prove they truly do bleed green and gold.
Poudre Valley Hospital and CSU need everyone’s help with the annual Border War Blood Drive. This year PVH and CSU are ‘Out for Blood’ on Nov.20th. CSU and PVH will be battling Wyoming and the United Blood Services for the most donations, with the winner gaining sole possession of the traveling “Bronze Heart” and receiving recognition at the football game on Nov. 27.
Join the CSU Athletic Department and Poudre Valley Hospital for the Border War Blood Drive on Nov. 20th. Poudre Valley Staff will take walk-in donations every half-hour beginning at 8:00 am and ending at 4:00pm in the McGraw Center Hall of Fame Room, located on the south concourse of Moby Arena. There is no better place to get free juice, pretzels and cookies.
Some facts on the benefits of donating blood:
• Every three seconds someone needs blood.
• 20% of blood recipients are children.
• Giving blood is 100% safe and virtually painless.
• Three lives can be saved with one pint of blood.
• A person’s body replenishes the fluid lost during blood donation within 24 hours.
• Men who donate blood three times a year reduce their iron concentration, thus reducing their risk of a heart attack by 50%.
• All blood donations serve the northern Colorado area.
