Wolverines for Life is a collaborative effort between the University of Michigan community, the American Red Cross, Be the Match, Gift of Life Michigan, Eversight, and Team Michigan. We are students, athletes, alumni, staff, faculty and campus and hospital leadership and we are allied with a common purpose: dedication to saving lives through donations.
Every football Saturday, the population of Ann Arbor, Michigan doubles as more than 115,000 people fill the hallowed "Big House" to watch their football heroes. That's about the same number of people waiting for a life-saving organ transplant in the United States. Every day, some die waiting. You can be a hero off the football field: sign up as an organ donor, give blood or join the registry for bone marrow donation.
