It's the first down, 50-yard drive for the Red Cross blood drive

YPSILANTI —Make a dash to help save lives at the 50-yard blood drive, at Eastern Michigan University, Oct. 6-8, noon–6 p.m., at the Student Center, Ballroom B.

The event is sponsored by the American Red Cross of Southeastern Michigan.

WXYT The Ticket’s Doug Karsch will broadcast live from the drive, Oct. 6, 2:30 p.m., and his colleague, Jay Towers, will broadcast from noon–2 p.m. Oct. 8.  Swoop, EMU’s mascot, will also make a surprise visit during the three-day drive.

There is always a need for blood. Donating takes less than an hour and one single unit of blood can help save up to three lives.
