Become a member of Transplant Sport and start actively promoting organ donation.
Membership is open to all and FREE – our members range in age from 2 to over 80! To take part in our events, you need to have received a life saving:
- Organ transplant (kidney, liver, heart, lung(s), pancreas)
- Bone marrow / stem cell from a third party.
Family, friends, living donors, donor families or companies and supporting organisations are also welcome to join.
We encourage members to participate in activities throughout the year. The annual highlight is the British Transplant Games which brings together hospital teams from across Great Britain and Northern Ireland to join in over 20 different sports events. Participants range from those seeking to set new world transplant records to those for whom just joining in is reward enough.
Transplant Sport events provide a great opportunity for transplant recipients and their supporters to get together with others who have been through similar health experiences. Lifelong friendships are formed.
As active transplant recipients, you are the best advert for the success of donation. All our events strive to increase the numbers of registered donors and emphasise the importance of letting loved ones know about the decision to be a registered donor.
