Donor Family Central
We are now in the process of organizing the largest and most successful team that participates in the Transplant Games of America – Team Philadelphia. Team Philadelphia is a team of over 300 men, women and children from the transplant community of eastern Pennsylvania, southern New Jersey and Delaware that participates in the Transplant Games of America every other summer. Throughout the six days, transplant recipients are invited to compete against other recipients from across the country in Olympic style athletic events. In addition to the competitions, there are many events for donor family members including the Opening Ceremonies, the Donor Tribute Ceremony, a butterfly release and other Donor Family events. The Transplant Games is both a celebration of life and a way to honor the extraordinary generosity of donor families.
The Transplant Games are a wonderful opportunity for donor families to meet other families who made the decision to Donate Life and to see the many recipients who are now thriving thanks to their transplants. Many donor families who attend the Games have shared how healing and inspiring the experience has been for them.
