Student clubs from West Virginia University’s College of Physical Activity and Sport Sciences will sponsor a blood drive Jan. 25 at the WVU Coliseum.

Students from CPASS athletic training, sports psychology and sports management clubs will host the blood drive in the Jerry West Room from 9 a.m.-3 p.m.

“This has become an annual event for our club. We hope the event will raise awareness of the need for local blood donations,” said Jeremy Ross, WVU Athletic Training Club co-president. The club scheduled the event in conjunction with the American Red Cross National Blood Donor Month.

The blood drive, which is in partnership with the American Red Cross, will require at least 100 individuals to donate.

Volunteers can sign up online to donate blood via http://redcrossblood.org. The blood drive is open to the public. Click here to schedule your donation.
