Join the Huskies! Help save lives at the CAA Blood Challenge!

The athletics department will host a blood drive on Monday, Nov. 2 at the Curry Student Center Ballroom from 12 to 7 p.m., as part of the eighth annual Colonial Athletic Association Blood Challenge.

The challenge, which began in 2002, sees each CAA institution designate one day during the Fall to conduct a campus-wide blood drive. With the assistance of local blood service centers, a count is kept of all people who donate blood on that day. Based on those numbers, the CAA determines a winner and presents a trophy to that institution.

Drexel University has taken home the Blood Challenge Trophy for the past three years, including a win with 826 donors in 2008.

Since its inception, the challenge has produced 17,728 units of blood which has helped to save 53,184 lives.
