Who We Are

Wolverines for life is a collaborative effort between the University of Michigan community, the American Red Cross, Be the Match, Gift of Life Michigan, Eversight, and Team Michigan. 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.

Coming soon: Be a Hero at the Big House!

Don't miss our biggest event of the year! Meet us at Michigan Stadium to donate blood, join the organ donor registry, or be screened as a bone marrow donor. But that's not all! We'll have a series of special guests, entertainment, snacks, giveaways, and so much more! Volunteer positions available. Click here for more info. 

Can't make it to Be a Hero? Schedule a blood drive appointment between 10/29/2019 and 11/27/2019 to help us beat OSU in the annual Blood Battle competition! Visit www.redcrossblood.org and enter promo code "goblue."
