I actually am already on the list as I signed up last year on the Michigan Secretary of State website when I renewed my driver's license. However, according to Ms. Hammond you can still sign up and participate in this U of M/OSU challenge even if you are already on the list. If you are not already on the list then here is your opportunity. It only takes a moment to do but can make all the difference in a person's life. Plus, Michigan gets to beat the Buckeyes! Go Blue!!!
