The Transplant Games are a fantastic celebration of the gift of life. The Games are a way to set health and fitness goals for transplant recipients, as well as an opportunity to be part of a wonderful community. The Games are centred around saying thanks for organ donation and promoting transplantation to Australia and the World.
While we have some elite athletes that attend the Games, they are by no means an elite sporting competition. The Games are about participation – getting involved, making friendships that will last years, and having a go.
The next Australian Games are due to be held in September 2020. The next World Transplant Games will be held in 2019 in Newcastle/Gateshead in the United Kingdom.
If you want to talk to someone about the Transplant Games and how you can get involved call Julie Edwards in the National Office on 02 9922 5400, or email Transplant Australia’s National Sports Administrator at [email protected].
