The 12th annual event took place from 9.a.m-2 p.m. and included participants from the campus and community.

The CAA started the event in 2002 to raise awareness about the importance of blood donation. The nine CAA schools compete for the most donors and the winner receives a trophy.

UNCW’s goal for this year was 250 units of blood. The conference-wide program was a success last year, raising 4,613 units, and aims even higher this year. Since 2002, CAA schools have raised a total 36,719 units, saving more than 100,000 lives.

The Red Cross needs 1,600 units of blood a day to service North Carolina hospitals. Blood is used to help accident victims, and many others with various illnesses and disorders. People’s lives rely on the generosity of blood donors.

UNCW has donated a total of 1,898 units of blood since 2002. The highest amount of donors was 257 in 2009.
