In an effort to increase the number of organ donors throughout the state, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Nov. 16 the University of Michigan will host its first ever “Be a hero at the Big House” at Michigan Stadium.
The first-ever donor drive will combine efforts to sign up organ, blood, tissue and bone marrow donors all in one day. Parking is free at the stadium inside the gates on the concourse.
“You can save lives three ways and also get a VIP-view of Michigan Stadium. At the event you can sign up to be an organ donor upon your death, register as a potential bone-marrow donor and also donate blood,” said Mary Masson of U of M public relations. “Plus, you can help us beat Ohio State in our annual Blood Battle and Wolverine-Buckeye challenge for organ donor registries.”
