Team Rocky Mountain is looking for your support to send athletes and donor families to the Transplant Games of America in Grand Rapids, MI July 28-31.
The Transplant Games of America is a multi-sport festival event for athletes who have undergone life-saving transplant surgeries and living donors. Competition is open to anyone who has received a solid organ transplant or bone marrow donation. More than just an athletic event, the Transplant Games of America highlights the critical importance of organ and tissue donation, while celebrating the lives of organ donors and recipients.
The games began over two decades ago as a way to communicate the important need for organ donation and that remains our goal today. It has grown into an event that brings transplant recipients and donor families together in a celebration of life. As a donor family you get a chance to see how your loved one’s donation has changed someone else life. As a transplant recipient you get to show the world that having a transplant is a second chance at life.

***Special Note: The American Transplant Foundation will match the first $200 in donations that I raise! Please consider doubling your donation today. This match is valid through Monday, July 23
