The Donate Life Transplant Games are happening THIS WEEK in Cleveland, Ohio! For the Games, living donors, organ transplant recipients, and tissue transplant recipients come together to compete for bronze, silver, and gold medals. The Games have youth and adult division competitions in a variety of sports, from ballroom dancing to basketball to table tennis.
Not only do the Donate Life Transplant Games raise awareness for tissue, corneal, bone marrow, and organ donation, the Games also bring together a community of people. Living donors, recipients, healthcare providers, donor families, individuals awaiting transplantation, you name it! The Transplant Games are an event that allows people to come together to celebrate the lasting legacy of organ and tissue donation and the lives of the people who chose to donate.
Good luck to all of the participants! Everyone at United Tissue Resources is celebrating and supporting you from afar! To watch the 2016 Donate Life Transplant Games on a live stream, or to learn more about the Games, click here!
