Transplant Games of America
July 11 - 15, 2014
The Transplant Games of America is a multi-sport festival event for individuals that have undergone life-saving transplant surgeries. The games are more than an athletic event! They highlight the importance of organ donation and celebrate the lives of organ donors and recipients. For more information about the 2014 Transplant Games of America and to register to participate, visit www.transplantgamesofamerica.org.
The PKD Foundation plans to attend the 2014 games to celebrate with PKD patients that have received a kidney transplant, living kidney donors and their families. If you plan to participate, please take our brief survey!
