The World Transplant Games are an amazing way to celebrate organ and tissue donation on the world stage. Come along and compete for your country.

Athletes competing at the World Transplant Games have one thing in common; they have all had a successful organ transplant.  By taking part they aim to raise global awareness of the importance of organ donation. There’s no greater gift than the gift of life and World Transplant Games athletes from so many countries worldwide are living proof of that.
