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. CLICK HERE for more information on Team Philly.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Transplant Life Foundation reformatted this year’s Transplant Games to take place in hometowns all across the country. This will ensure the safety of our participants while creating a broader reach to spread awareness and reinforce our mission of saving lives through donation and transplantation. This technology based experience will include a full production of signature events along with other important programming to bring the transplant community together to celebrate the miracle of transplantation. We invite you to join us in San Diego for the 2022 Donate Life Transplant Games! Please visit TransplantGamesofAmerica.org for more 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!
