Blood Challenge Seeks To Get the Red Out

Posted November 17, 1999

Before the Big Game next Saturday, the American Red Cross will be on campus encouraging Bears to "get the red out" and donate blood to challenge Stanford in the second annual Hema Bowl.

The Cal Blood Drive, hosted by Alumni Scholars and Chi Omega Sorority, will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Friday, Nov. 19, at the Martin Luther King Jr. Student Union Building, 3rd floor. Students and employees are encouraged to participate and out-give their rivals at Stanford before the Big Game.

"This is a way to show team spirit and help the community," said Red Cross spokeswoman Cynthia Gregory. "This blood drive is the chance to show who has more heart, Cal or Stanford."

Last year the Hema Bowl raised 172 units of blood from loyal Cal fans. "We're hoping for more this year," said Gregory. "This will be the last big challenge of the century."

The American Red Cross provides blood to patients in need in 42 Northern California hospitals. Blood isn't just used for transfusions anymore. Increasingly, it is used as medicine in the treatment of chronic conditions. To donate blood, you must be 17 years or older, weigh 110 lbs. or more, and enjoy generally good health. People interested in donating blood can call 1-800-GIVE LIFE seven days a week to schedule an appointment.
