The 2016 Donate Life Transplant Games will be held in Cleveland, OH June 10-15, 2016. The transplant games are held every 2 years, each time at a different location in the US.
The games are a multi-sport festival to promote the need for organ and tissue donation and to show the world that transplantation is a viable treatment to save and improve lives.
The event brings the donor and recipient families together. It also honors living donors and donor families. The transplant recipients are able to pay tribute to those who gave them a second chance at life.
The 2014 games were held in Houston, TX. Three representatives from The Ultimate Gift of Life Foundation attended and were able to experience first hand the impact organ donation has on the donor families and the recipients. It helped to confirm the importance of doing what we do!
The Ultimate Gift of Life Foundation’s Mission is to help to raise awareness about the incredible benefits of organ donation through education which will lead to an increased number of registered organ donors and an increase in the number of lives saved through organ donation.
