Indiana Blood Center and Riley Dance Marathon have a common bond in their mission to help fight childhood disease and injury. Over 11,000 blood products each year are provided to Riley Hospital by Indiana Blood Center.
During the academic school year, collegiate and high school blood drives held with Indiana Blood Center supply Riley Children’s Hospital with nearly 30% of the blood products needed to care for Riley patients.
Indiana University students conduct one of the largest dance marathon events, raising over $10 million dollars to date.
As a precursor to this year’s Indiana University Dance Marathon (IUDM) event on November 4th, IUDM is hosting a 3-day campus blood drive that will increase their impact on Riley patients by encouraging blood donations.
What: IUDM Blood Drive
When: October 25th – 27th
Where: IU Student Memorial Union
Indiana University staff, faculty and students will donate blood and the total donations will be announced at Indiana University’s Dance Marathon event on November 4th.
