Every other year, Gift of Life Donor Program, the region's organ procurement organization, organizes a team of transplant recipients, donor family members, living donors and their supporters to participate in the Transplant Games of America. Next year, the Transplant Games will be held in Houston, Texas from July 11-15, 2014.

The Transplant Games of America is an Olympic-style athletic competition that raises organ and tissue donor awareness by displaying the talents and abilities of individuals who have undergone life-saving transplant surgeries, as well as honoring families whose loved ones have given the gift of life. Competition events are open to organ transplant recipients, living donors, bone marrow recipients, and a limited number of corneal and tissue transplant recipients. There will also be special programs and workshops available for donor families to attend as well plenty of opportunities to cheer on our athletes as they prove that transplantation works!
