Team Northwest - Transplant Games of America
A team for TRANSPLANTS IN ACTION
Transplant Games of America - Cleveland Ohio 2016
Team Northwest is a regional group of transplant recipients, donor family members, living donors and supporters who are attending the Transplant Games of America (TGA) in Cleveland, Ohio, the summer of 2016. TGA is a festival style multi-sport event for athletes who have either undergone lifesaving transplant surgeries or are living donors. More than just an athletic competition, the Transplant Games of America highlight the critical importance of organ and tissue donation, while celebrating the lives of organ donors and recipients. The Games showcase the success of transplantation and living organ donation, call attention to the life-saving importance of organ donation, and recognize the contribution of the families who donate the organs and tissues of loved ones each year.
The Transplant Games give Team Northwest members an opportunity to add their voice, to personalize their connection to transplantation and organ donation as they reach out to family, friends, acquaintances, co-workers, and the media to support the mission of the Games.
