Each year the Wolverines For Life* hosts Ann Arbor’s largest blood, marrow and organ/tissue/eye donor drive at Michigan Stadium, inside the luxurious Jack Roth Club on the 4th and 3rd floors. Last year more than 800 people came to “Be a Hero at the Big House!”
This year’s event is on Sunday, November 11 from 8am – 5pm.
Gift of Life is hosting a donor registry sign-up table on the 4th floor, close to the 50-yard line. We are looking for volunteers to spend a few hours answering questions about the donation process and signing people up to donate on our website.
Other things to enjoy during the event, for FREE: Washtenaw Dairy donuts, cider, coffee, lunch at noon, photo opp above the 50-yard line, photo with the Wolverines Trooper, a mascot dance-off competition, a variety of beauty pageant winners and local team mascots, family-friendly games, free t-shirts, door prize raffles, and much more!
