Donate Life Transplant Games of America Recap
A contingency of LifeGift and Donate Life Texas transplant recipients and donor families recently traveled to Salt Lake City, Utah, for the 2018 Donate Life Texas Transplant Games of America. Some of them came home with medals, but all of them came home with fun memories and new friendships forged.
The Donate Life Transplant Games is a multisport festival event produced by the Transplant Life Foundation for individuals who have undergone lifesaving transplant surgeries. Competition events are open to living donors; organ transplant recipients; and bone marrow, corneal and tissue transplant recipients. More than athletic events, the Donate Life Transplant Games highlight the critical importance of organ, eye and tissue donation, while celebrating the lives of organ donors and recipients.
Before heading to Salt Lake City, our Team Texas representatives were treated to send-off parties hosted by LifeGift. Volunteers in the Southeast even received a pep talk from Olympian Seun Adigun.
Congratulations to all!
