Transplant Games of America to be held in Birmingham, Alabama 2024
Team Texas has participated in the Transplant Games of America as Texas Life Warriors since 2012. The games are for transplant recipients, living donors and donor families. The event is a time to show appreciation to our loved ones who care for us and our everlasting gratitude to Donor Families. The games are an amazing way to raise awareness for organ donation. The games also promote a healthy lifestyle and most importantly creating relationships with people who understand transplantation and help spread the word of importance of organ donation. The U.S. Transplant Games are held every other year on the even years. The first National Games were a small group of transplant recipients that gathered in the Great State of Texas.
SPORTS include: 5K, Badminton, Ballroom Dancing, Basketball, Bowling, Corn hole (bean bag toss), Cycling, Golf, Racquetball, Swimming, Table Tennis, Tennis, Texas Hold 'em, Track and Field, Trivia Pursuit, Darts, Pickleball and Volleyball. The 5K is a medal event for transplant recipients, living donors and anyone who likes to run or walk! The rest of the events are for recipients and living donors. Gold, Silver and Bronze medals are awarded to the top three competitors in each category.
