Team Philly: Transplant Games of America
Team Philly is a group of transplant recipients, living donors, donor families, and supporters who attend and compete at the Donate Life Transplant Games.
Transplant Games of America is a biennial summer Olympic-style competition that highlights transplant success and the importance of organ and tissue donation. It’s a celebration for all those whose lives were touched by organ and tissue donation.
Every other year Gift of Life organizes a team to participate in and support the event.
Due to the ongoing spread of COVID-19, the 2020 Donate Life Transplant Games scheduled for July 17-22 have been postponed. Once the COVID-19 health crisis subsides, a new set of dates for the New Jersey Games will be announced.
Registration for the 2020 Transplant Games is currently closed and will reopen once the new dates have been confirmed. All existing registrations will automatically be applied to the new dates.
Please visit TransplantGamesofAmerica.org to view the official postponement announcement and to access additional Transplant Games information.
About Transplant Games of America
The Donate Life Transplant Games of America raises organ and tissue donor awareness by showcasing the abilities of individuals who have undergone life-saving transplant surgeries. Competition events are open to organ transplant recipients, living donors, bone marrow recipients, and some corneal and tissue transplant recipients.
The event also honors those whose loved ones have given the gift of life and includes programs for donor families.
There are plenty of opportunities for everyone to cheer on our athletes as they prove that transplantation works!
