Nov. 6, 2012

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - The 25th annual Battle of the Orange and Blue, a blood drive competition between Tennessee and Kentucky, will be held November 12-16.

MEDIC Regional Blood Center is calling all students to show their Vols' spirit and volunteer to give blood.

Students and faculty will have the opportunity to donate blood throughout the week at different sights on campus including the University Center and several resident halls.

Students and faculty who donate will receive a free T-shirt, a free small pizza from Papa John's Pizza and a free cholesterol screening. And, if donors can make their way to MEDIC's headquarters located at 1601 Ailor Avenue (straight up 17th St.) during the week they will receive a free Regal Cinema movie pass with no restrictions or expiration. The movie passes will only be given out at the Ailor Avenue location which is open 8 a.m.- 6:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Kentucky fans have won this competition the last two years and the overall record over the years is 12 wins for Vols and 12 wins for Wildcat fans with one tie back in 1992.

MEDIC, a not-for-profit blood center, was established in 1958. MEDIC is the only blood collector and supplier for the greater East Tennessee area.
