Q. What are the World Transplant Games?

A. The World Transplant Games have been in existence for over 33 years following the very first ‘Transplant Olympics’ held in Portsmouth in 1978 with what was described as “99 bloomin miracles”. These were the brainchild of transplant surgeon, Maurice Slapak, to demonstrate the quality of life which could be achieved of transplant patients following their surgery. Since these early beginnings, the World Games have grown and are now held bi-annually in different countries.

The ethos of the transplant games both at national and international level is to raise public awareness of organ donation and where the games are held there is a rise in public commitment to become an organ donor. The aim for sports persons is to celebrate life, pay tribute to their donors and encourage people to register on the organ donor list.

The athletes get no financial support for the games, and like them we have to raise our own funds. As a group we are looking at raising £8000 to get to Malaga. Throughout our fundraising we are also looking to raise awareness of organ donation and the transplant games, being able to support these athletes is an experience in itself and we are able to support the athletes throughout their training and performance.
