All donors will receive two tickets to the CU vs Air Force football game on September 14.

New CU head football coach Mel Tucker’s Buffaloes will have their first big test at Mile High Stadium on August 30th against the CSU Rams. The winner of the Rocky Mountain Showdown, one of the nation’s oldest intercollegiate rivalries, will take home the coveted Centennial Trophy. You too can be part of the friendly rivalry between the Rams and the Buffs by participating in our CU vs. CSU Blood Drive!

Staff Council invites all CU Boulder staff, faculty, and students eligible to donate blood to participate in our annual Vitalant Blood Drive competition with CSU. Blood center reserves are critically low, making it an especially crucial time for donating. Last year, the CU Boulder campus just squeaked out a victory in the Showdown Challenge, so we are urging you to help step up our game this August and positively impact lives with your blood donation.
