Celebrating the Gift of Life!
More than just an athletic event, the Transplant Games of America is a celebration for everyone connected to organ donation and transplantation. Donor families, living donors, transplant recipients and a host of others who have been touched by the impact of organ donation will join the Salt Lake City community in “Celebrating the Gift of Life.”
The Transplant Games of America is a festival-style event for athletes who have undergone life-saving transplant surgery or who are living donors.
Team Nebraska is a small but mighty team made up of amazing individuals. Donor families, whose “gift of life” makes this all possible, cheer the team on whatever the sport may be. They are our anchors, despite their own pain and personal loss. We support each other through activities and events along with tears of happiness and sorrow. We athletes, family, donors, and friends will leave the Transplant Games of America as changed people.
Team Nebraska is an independent team run by volunteers. We do not focus on medal count, but on achievements, accomplishments, and new found friendships.
