The Australian Transplant Games are a celebration of life received through organ and tissue donation. They unite all those touched by donation including transplant recipients, donor families, living donors and those waiting for a transplant. Through sport and games, competitors benchmark their renewed health and wellness and say thank you to organ and tissue donors.
The Australian Transplant Games is the country’s largest awareness activity for organ and tissue donation. The Games cover a multitude of sports and recreational activities, giving individuals the opportunity to try sports they have not participated in before. The Games also provide an opportunity to network with others in similar situations - transplant recipients, those undergoing dialysis treatment, those awaiting transplantation, living donors, family members of deceased donors and supporters.
