Team Philadelphia is made up of about 200 athletes. Some are organ transplant recipients, some are living donors and some are family members.
For one local couple, the Transplant Games are special for many reasons.
Jenn and Trevin Ray are getting ready for the Transplant Games.
Jenn, now 34 had a heart transplant when she 19. She was an athlete before she got sick and feels blessed to be able to return to sports.
“I feel great like I can’t even describe like I feel like a normal person,” said Jenn.
Trevin, now 30 also had a transplant at 19 – a pancreas. The two first met at the transplant games in South Africa in 2013.
