Let’s Bleed Blue, Kentucky Fans!

Save a life, and show your Wildcat pride. Donate blood Jan. 23-27 to help Kentucky slam the Gators in the annual Big Blue Slam blood battle.

Donate blood, and you’ll receive a commemorative Slam T-shirt, perfect for showing your Wildcat pride during basketball season. And it’s never too early to think about March Madness. Donate during Slam, and you’ll also be entered to win tickets to the NCAA First and Second Rounds in Indianapolis.

You can also donate at the fifth annual Rupp Arena Blood Drive on Tuesday, Jan. 24 from 10 am – 6:30 pm. Donors will get an up-close view of the Cats’ home court and get to take shots on the same floor where so many basketball legends have delivered the thrill of victory to the Big Blue Nation. Texas Roadhouse will also provide food for donors.

About Big Blue Slam

Big Blue Slam is a friendly competition between the blood donors of Kentucky and Florida. It’s a fun tradition, but most importantly, Slam donations help ensure enough blood is on the shelves for the thousands of Kentucky and Florida patients who will require transfusions during the winter.
