The Badger Football Team offers their support to this effort. Enter to win an autographed football from the team!

The DKMS Bone Marrow drive was a great success. According to organizer Melissa Hovanes, “We had about 300 people register at College Library on the 2nd for a grand total of 517 new registered potential donors.” In addition, members of the UW-Madison football team helped raise close to $800 to pay for processing submissions by raffling an autographed football. Thanks to everyone who participated. For photos of the event, check out our Flickr photostream.
