WMU community rising to the challenge

Sept. 27, 2004

KALAMAZOO--The annual "Blood Challenge" with Central Michigan University is under way and the Western Michigan University is looking to break out of its slump. WMU has lost the campuswide challenge to donate the most pints of blood for the American Red Cross each of the past three years. Last year, WMU lost by a mere three pints.

We've been needled enough. Help turn things around during this year's seven-week competition by giving blood on one of the following days:
