“Rivals for Life” Blood Drive

Get ready to show your support for the Cardinal by taking part in the Rivals for Life blood drive! In the spirit of the epic Big Game, we’re bringing two communities together for our annual blood drive, where we’re backing the real stars of the day — the patients who need our help.

Give the gift of life at the Rivals for Life blood drive and help us outshine Cal’s collections once again! Plus, there’s an extra dose of excitement because all donors get their hands on an awesome FREE Rivals for Life beanie.

Go Cardinal!
