OSHKOSH (WKOW) -- Students at UW-Oshkosh registered to be potential lifesavers on Thursday.
It was all part of a "Be the Match" drive to add more people to the National Bone Marrow Donor program.
At the drive, students learned about what it means to be on the registry, put their names on the list and gave DNA samples.
"One person is all it takes," said organizer Kelli Vander Wielen. "Every person that gets on the registry gives hope to those that are searching and there's a lot that are searching. We need to find a match for everyone and this drive today is going to help to do that."
Organizers hoped to add 200 new names to the donor list through the drive.
