6th Annual Causeway Classic Blood Drive

Posted by & filed under Campus Life, News.

photo 1The Annual Causeway Classic Blood Drive is back again this year and Sacramento State students are gearing up to beat UC Davis for the third year in a row!

BloodSource, in collaboration with Associated Students, Inc., hosts a two-day event that asks students to come and donate blood. Students will also have the chance to sign up for the bone marrow donation list.

Approximately 1 out of every 7 people that enter the hospital are in need of blood. With that, there are approximately 43,000 pints of blood used each day in the United States. The need for donations is continually increasing and with the help of Sacramento State students, we can save thousands of lives.

“Each year, we see an increase in participants for the Annual Causeway Classic Blood Drive. We’re really excited to see the turnout this year, and shoot for our 3rd year in a row to beat UC Davis!” -Daniel Jackson, Sacramento State Student and ASI A-Team Event Coordinator

Participants will receive a FREE t-shirt and MyBloodSource rewards that you can redeem for additional prizes. Also, drawings will be held throughout the two-day event to give away gift cards and other great prizes!

Last year, we registered over 1,700 participants and collected 1,382 pints of blood. Our new goal to reach 1,500 usable pints will only be made possible if you ‘pay it forward’ and donate blood! Donors can also give at any center or mobile blood drive from October 22nd-November 6th with the code L029 to count towards Sacramento State.
