Local organ donors, recipients to compete in transplant games

THE COATESVILLE TIMES

From June 10-15, transplant recipients and living donors will travel to Cleveland, OH as part of Team Philadelphia – showcasing their athletic abilities, passion and determination as they compete in the 2016 Donate Life Transplant Games of America! Ninety-three transplant recipients and living donors, and twenty-six donor families from the eastern half of Pennsylvania, southern New Jersey and Delaware will be participating in the Games as part of Team Philadelphia 2016. The Games will welcome Team Philadelphia and more than 6,000 athletes from across the country, who will give it their all as they compete in sporting events such as track and field, basketball, swimming and more!

The Transplant Games is an exciting, biennial Olympic-style competition for organ, corneal, bone marrow and tissue transplant recipients and living donors – and is a great opportunity to highlight the success of transplantation and draw attention to the critical shortage of organ and tissue donors in the tri-state region. Donor family members, whose loved ones gave the gift of life through organ donation, will also travel to Cleveland as part of Team Philly – to cheer on athletes and show their support of donation and transplantation.
