FORT COLLINS, Colo. - Rams fans are encouraged to come out and give to a great cause by donating blood for the annual Border War Blood Drive Friday. 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.
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.
Poudre Valley Staff will take walk-in donations every half-hour beginning at 8 a.m. Friday and ending at 4 p.m. in the Moby Arena 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 percent of blood recipients are children.
Giving blood is 100 percent 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 percent.
All blood donations serve the northern Colorado area.
