Bedlam Blood Battle

Friday is the final day to give blood and help your team bring home this season’s Bedlam Blood Battle trophy. After four days OU has had 886 people try to give. The University of Oklahoma still needs 400 donors to beat Oklahoma State University.

Oklahoma Blood Institute (OBI) will be on the OU campus to take donations from those 16* and older who are generally in good health can give blood.  

Student groups are asking all who are in good health and 16* or older to give blood this week.  It takes only an hour to give blood at the ROTC Armory, between today or Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.  

One, lucky donor will win two tickets to the 2013 Bedlam football game in Stillwater**.  Each day, a donor will be selected to win a football autographed by OU Head Football Coach Bob Stoops. Each donor will receive a free OU blood donor T-shirt and food.  

The school who scores the most blood donors at week’s end will receive a trophy and bragging rights for the season.  OBI donors provide every drop of blood needed by patients in all metro-Oklahoma City hospitals and 140 other medical facilities across Oklahoma.  

For more information or to make an appointment to donate, contact Oklahoma Blood Institute at 877-340-8777 or visit www.obi.org.
