Save a Life This Season at the Bleed Blue Blood Drive 

December is a time for giving, and what better gift is there than the gift of life? On Friday, December 17, Colts fans can help save lives by donating blood at the Bleed Blue Blood Drive, the largest day-long blood drive in the state. 

Taking place at Lucas Oil Stadium, the Bleed Blue Blood Drive, hosted by the Colts and Versiti Blood Center of Indiana, will also be a chance to get in on some Colts action. All donors will receive an exclusive, limited-edition Colts football featuring Michael Pittman Jr., and have

Blood donors must be at least 17 years old, in good health and meet eligibility requirements. Parental consent is required for donors age 16 to give.
