2014 Transplant Games of AmericaTransplant Games of America

Houston, Texas
July 11-15, 2014

The Transplant Games of America is a multi-sport festival event for individuals who have undergone life-saving transplant surgeries. Competition events are open to living donors, organ transplant recipients, bone marrow recipients, and a limited number of corneal and tissue transplant recipients. More than an athletic event, the Transplant Games of America highlight the critical importance of organ, eye, and tissue donation, while celebrating the lives of organ donors and recipients.


This year, the PKD Foundation will attend the Transplant Games of America to celebrate with PKD families, transplant recipients, donors and donor families.

Are you wondering if you should participate?  Here is what two sisters, donor and recipient have to say about the experience!

In 2006, JoAnn Villanueva participated in Transplant Games of America and has this to say about her experience, "As a kidney recipient, I would encourage people to participate to show donor families and living donors that their gift of life has given us the opportunity to do what we dream about. 
Her sister, Suzanne Ruff donated her kidney to JoAnn.  Suzanne also encourages people to participate in the Transplant Games, "It doesn't matter if you place first or last. The cheers around you are as loud for last as they are for first.  You don't have to be an incredible athlete to participate. Being in front of the fans cheering you on is the best way to show gratitude and that organ donation works."
