Donate blood and get your hands on this year’s Rivals for Life t-shirt!

Every year, as Stanford and Cal battle it out on the football field, their respective blood centers have a competition of their own. Show your support for the Cardinal by donating at the “Rivals for Life” blood drive, and help us beat Cal for the 11th year running!

This year’s battle for blood takes place on Tuesday, November 13. Once both drives are complete, we’ll compare notes and a winner will be declared. Stanford pride not enough motivation to donate? All presenting donors receive a free Rivals for Life t-shirt. Oh yeah, and you’ll save lives, too!

PLEASE NOTE: This can be a popular drive, so there may be a small wait.
