Hoxworth Blood Drive

The Bengals again teamed up with Hoxworth Blood Center of the University of Cincinnati at Paul Brown Stadium on October 3, 2012 to produce Cincinnati’s largest blood drive when it registered 866 donors and collected 816 lifesaving blood products.

"We are thrilled with the support that the Bengals organization and fans showed at the blood drive and welcome them to the rank of lifesaver," Hoxworth spokesperson Alecia Lipton said in a news release detailing the 11th Annual Bengals Blood Drive.

Blood donors not only received a limited-edition long-sleeved Bengals T-shirt, but they also had an opportunity to meet and greet head coach Marvin Lewis, and 19 of his players as well as mascot Who Dey.

Bengals coaches, players, alumni, cheerleaders and staff are present annually at Paul Brown Stadium to help the Hoxworth Blood Center collect donations before the busy holiday season. In 2005, the drive earned the Bengals a Special Recognition Award from America’s Blood Centers, an organization based in Washington, D.C. The drive has set numerous records for largest single-day blood drive in Greater Cincinnati.
