Marissa Cutillo, a first-time blood donor, is one of many students participating in this year's Penn State-Michigan State Blood Donor Challenge. Each year, Red Cross Donor Field Resources Representative for Penn State Wendi Keeler explains, the schools face off to see which university can raise the most units of blood. Keeler said the schools use contrasting strategies: Michigan State will hold consistent blood drives throughout the three-week period, while Penn State relies heavily on a last-minute push in the final days of the challenge to increase its total.
