Feb. 21, 2013 - Friday is the final day to give blood and help the Sooners take the lead to win the Bedlam Blood Battle trophy. OU students are vying to gather the most blood donors possible with 662 donating thus far.
Oklahoma Blood Institute (OBI) will be at the ROTC Armory between 11:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Friday. Those 16* and older who are generally in good health can give blood.
Each donor will receive a free OU blood donor T-shirt and food. A donor who gives Friday will be selected to win a basketball autographed by OU Men’s Basketball Head Coach Lon Kruger or OU Women’s Basketball Head Coach Sherri Coale.
The school who scores the most blood donors this spring will receive a trophy and bragging rights for the season. The winning school of the Spring Bedlam Blood Battle will be announced in May at the Bedlam Baseball Series in Oklahoma City. Donate on campus at an official OBI Bedlam Blood Drive from now through April 31.
Since OBI donors provide every drop of blood needed by patients in all metro-Oklahoma City hospitals and 140 other medical facilities across Oklahoma, both schools are truly winners!
