Big Blue Crush 2017

Kentucky donors: Prove you Bleed Blue!

Save a life, and show your Wildcat pride during the 30th annual Big Blue Crush. Donate blood Nov. 13-17 to help Kentucky notch another win over Tennessee in the annual Big Blue Crush blood battle.

Monday and Tuesday donors will be entered to win 1 of 30 $30 gift cards. All donors will receive a commemorative Big Blue Crush long-sleeve T-shirt and a chance to win tickets to the UK vs. Louisville football game.

KBC’s five donor centers will be open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. – 7 p.m. during Crush. Call 800-775-2522 x3758 to find a Crush blood drive or schedule an appointment.

If you joined the Bleed Blue Donor Club earlier this year, your Crush donation will put you just one donation closer to receiving a KBC Tervis tumbler. Get it during Big Blue Slam.

About Big Blue Crush

The 2017 Big Blue Crush will mark the 30th edition of this friendly competition between the blood donors of Kentucky and Tennessee. The Commonwealth holds an overall Crush lead of 16-12 with one tie and has won the past seven consecutive blood battles. It’s a fun tradition, but most importantly, Crush donations help ensure enough blood is on the shelves for the thousands of Kentucky and Tennessee patients who will require transfusions during the holiday season.
