Who We Are

Wolverines For Life sponsor groups

Wolverines for life is a collaborative effort between the University of Michigan community, the American Red Cross, Be the Match, Gift of Life Michigan and Eversight. We are students, athletes, alumni, staff, faculty and campus and hospital leadership and we are allied with a common purpose: dedication to saving lives through donations. 

Our goals are straightforward

  • Implement a University-wide zero tolerance policy for:
    • organ wait list deaths
    • deaths due to lack of blood products
    • deaths due to lack of bone marrow matches
  • Educate each member of the U-M community about the need for donors

Become a Wolverine for Life today by learning more about how you can become a life-saving donor.

Be a Hero at the Big House

Join us for the 7th Annual Be a Hero at the Big House on Sunday, November 12th from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. This is the largest single-day blood drive on the University of Michigan's campus, a kick-off to the annual Blood Battle against Ohio State University, an opportunity to join the organ and bone marrow registries, and a celebration of life-saving donation. We will have games, snacks, giveaways, special guests and more!
