2014 Donate Life Transplant Games of America

In Houston, Texas, from July 11-15, 2014, the Transplant Games of America will host the largest contingent of individuals who have been touched by organ, eye, and tissue donation.  Participants will include recipients, living donors, donor families, medical professionals, and community fans who believe in the benefits of donation.

While the events center around intense competition between over 40 teams from across the United States, all chasing the gold, silver, and bronze medals, the days and nights are filled with an array of activities that will challenge even the most energetic fan.
