Big Blue Crush 2023 Crush the Vols!

Big Blue Crush 2023 T-shirt.
November 13th - November 17th

The 36th annual Big Blue Crush is back, offering Kentuckians a chance to save lives and one-up rival Tennessee in the process.

The yearly blood competition between Kentucky Blood Center and MEDIC Regional Blood Center in Tennessee will take place Nov. 13-17 at all KBC locations. KBC hopes to build on its 20-14-1 overall mark in the all-important push to boost the blood supply before Thanksgiving holiday week.

As a thank you for saving lives, all Big Blue Crush donors will receive a Big Blue Crush T-shirt.

Do You Bleed Blue?

Donors can give at any of KBC’s eight donor centers or mobile drives throughout the week. KBC donor centers, listed below, are open 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. during Big Blue Crush. Mobile drives, including at the University of Kentucky, can be found below.
