Team Nevada

Calling all Nevada athletes! Join Team Nevada and be a part of the U.S. Transplant Games!  The 2010 U.S. Transplant Games will be held in Madison, Wisconsin on July 30 – August 4, 2010.         

The Olympic-style competition, presented by the National Kidney Foundation, is open to anyone who has had a life-saving organ transplant for six months or longer, including kidney, liver, lung, heart, pancreas, and bone marrow.         

Living donors and donor families are also a very special part of the U.S. Transplant Games. Their involvement with the team is key to the Team’s success. Programs and activities are planned for family and donors, however one of the most moving experiences is watching the Games and seeing first-hand how donation has saved and enhanced the lives of so many.         

Fundraising for the Games is underway and we welcome any organization or individual who would like to be a Team sponsor. Many levels of sponsorships are available and donations are tax deductible.         

The games are held every two years for recipients of life-saving organ transplants (doctor’s approval required). Transplant patients compete in athletic events, make new friends and share common experiences.          

Attending the Transplant Games is a wonderful way to celebrate the gift of life.  It is an amazing four days of competition, cheers, tears, and inspiration.
