ABOUT THE NKF U.S. TRANSPLANT GAMES® The National Kidney Foundation U.S. Transplant Games® have offered transplant recipients, living donors and family members of deceased donors a chance to come together to honor the gift of life and celebrate the success of transplantation.
In 2010, over 2,000 children and adult recipients attended this extraordinary four-day event in Madison, Wisconsin.
Transplant recipients (heart, lung, liver, kidney, pancreas and bone marrow) of ALL ages participated in various sports offered during the Games.
Living donors and family members of deceased donors had the opportunity to meet others who have shared similar experiences. During the Games, they were also honored for their 'gifts' at special ceremonies.
