“Rivals for Life” Blood Drive

As Stanford players continue to dominate on the football field, the Stanford community has held onto a special trophy of its own. In honor of the Big Game, two communities are coming together for this annual blood drive to help support the real winners — the patients. Give blood at the annual Rivals for Life blood drive to help us beat Cal’s collections once again! All donors receive a FREE Rivals for Life beanie.
