MSUN Football Program Will Donate Blood Wed. for Great Falls Boy

HAVRE, Mont. (NMB) – The Montana State University-Northern football program is teaming up with the Troy “Strong” movement in Montana with a blood drive at Havre’s St. Jude’s Parish Center on Wednesday from noon to 5 PM.

Troy is a 4-year-old boy who is battling a rare autoimmune disease and the mission of Troy “Strong” is to encourage the life saving deed of blood donation. MSU-Northern head football coach Andrew Rolin says as a father of two, his is a story and cause that he can relate to.

“How can our program help? How can we promote this cause that you guys have started here in Montana? And that’s what we’ve done. So we’re teaming up with the Troy Strong movement and with Red Cross of Montana and doing our part and doing what we can in the name of Troy. He’s a brave 4-year-old boy and he loves football and he’s already a Lights fan, so we’re pretty excited about that.”
