LAST month, Transplant Sport officially launched the 2024 British Transplant Games, the charity’s annual event in Nottingham.
The launch saw the Games organisers looking ahead to the multi-sport event, set to take place from Thursday 1st to Sunday 4th August, and unite the entire transplant community, including 1,000 transplanted athletes.
The Games aim to raise awareness of the life-saving benefits of organ donation and encourage recipients to stay active post-transplant. Athletes ranging from the ages of three to eighty plus, from over 60 hospital teams across the UK, will represent their unit with the support of family, friends and volunteers to compete in the Games.
Dr Paul Harden, Chair of Transplant Sport said: “I’m sure I can vouch for everyone involved in the Games in saying that we are all really looking forward to a wonderful event hosted in Nottingham as we know the facilities will be first class. I have no doubt this year’s Games will be the best yet through our ongoing support network from the stakeholder board, talented athletes and volunteers making it their mission to leave a legacy behind in Nottingham.”
