Event Description

We are a group of sports therapists from Coventry University who are volunteering to be part of the medical support for the British Transplant Team. Each athlete has undergone a life-saving transplant and through determination and hard work has battled to be selected and compete at this high international level.  Our role as sports therapists is to support the athletes throughout the games by preparing them for competition and helping to minimise injury risk. We are very proud of these athletes and feel honoured to support them.

There is no government support for the team, each athlete and support staff has to raise their own funds therefore WE NEED YOUR HELP!

These athletes represent the organ donors and their families, competing in their good health in a variety of sports against transplantees from all over the world.

This virtual run has been organised to acknowledge the 8 organs everyone has the chance to donate. Therefore, we ask you to run, jog, walk or crawl 8 miles over 8 days. This can be all at once or a mile a day, between the 1st and 8th of April 2017. Your medal will be posted out to you for the end of the event.

We want to see all your pictures, post them to our facebook page  so we can see what everyone has been up to.   

80% of all funds raised will be going towards getting our group to the games so we can provide our support to the GB team.
