Registration for the re-scheduled 2020 Transplant Games, July 16-21, 2021, has officially re-opened! For those that did not register already, if you register by July 18, 2020, you can register at the original rates. After that date, registration costs will increase substantially, reflecting the additional expenses associated with rescheduling the event.
Who can be an athlete at the Games?
Any transplant recipient who has been post-transplant for at least nine months may participate in the Games. This includes allogenic bone marrow recipients, tissue recipients, and cornea recipients. Living Donors may compete in select events as well. This is in addition to the 5K Race, which is open to everyone!
What athletic events are held at the Games?
Badminton, Basketball, Ballroom Dancing, Bowling, Cycling, Cornhole, Darts, Golf, Racquetball, Pickleball, 5K race (open to the public), Swimming, Table Tennis, Tennis, Track and Field, Texas Hold Em, Trivia, and Volleyball. There are multiple age categories for each sport.
Do I have to be a superstar, amazing athlete?
Of course not! People of all different skill levels attend the games. The real meaning behind the Games is to show that organ transplantation works, and that people with transplants lead healthy, active lives. There are athletic and non-athletic competition events - there is something for everyone!
What activities are offered for donor families?
An inspiring donor family program will pay tribute to donors and their families. Workshops and other activities will also be available for donors families.
