The British Transplant games were launched in 1978 and are hosted annually in cities all over the UK. The games demonstrate the benefits of organ transplantation, encouraging transplant patients to regain their fitness.
The games also aim to increase public awareness of the NHS Organ Donor Register in the hope that more people join and discuss their wishes with thier families. 2017 is a very special year for the Transplant Games as this year they come to Scotland!
Each year Kidney Kids Scotland support a team to take part in the British Transplant Games. These incredibly brave children have lived on a daily basis with hospital appointments and medical treatment. Having had a transplant they find that they can now live a normal life - and take part in sports just like other children. Competing in the Games is a chance for these youngsters to show that their condition is no barrier to achievement. It is an incredibly uplifting and rewarding experience for all of those taking part.
The Games are not only a wonderful experience for all of those taking part, but it is an inspirational event that gives hope for all of those children still waiting on a transplant who aspire to take part one day themselves...and of course to lead a 'normal' life!
