The Donate Life Transplant Games will be held in Salt Lake City on August 2 – 7, 2018. The Games include various competitive events that give transplant recipients an opportunity to show that transplant truly does give people a second chance. The Games are held every other year and in a different host state/city each time. Having the Games in Salt Lake City will make it much easier for local recipients to participate. We want to have a large team this year. For information about TeamUtahIdaho, log on to www.teamutahidaho.org.
There will be a 5K run and a 2K walk on August 4, that is open to the public. This is the only event that the public will be able to participate along with the transplant athletes. Transplant athletes will be timed in their own category and the public will be timed in a separate category. It will be a fun way to get involved and be a part of the Games. Register online at www.runreg.com.
Another great way to get involved with the Games is to volunteer. Volunteers will be needed to help with sporting events, special events, at the Transplant Games Village, etc. For information on the Transplant Games or on how to volunteer for the Games, click here.
