Transplant Games Announcement:
The past couple of weeks have brought uncertainty and great concern. The COVID-19 virus has tremendously altered our nation, relationships and lives. Please know that you are an
important part of our family and have been in our thoughts during these trying times.
Our community includes recipients, donor families, living donors, caregivers, donation and transplant professionals and many others. Each day, the Transplant Life Foundation works to further our mission of serving the donation and transplant community with educational materials, programs, and events that enhance and improve lives.
The Transplant Games is the cornerstone activity of our mission and one that allows us to come together to demonstrate the amazing gift of life, the miracle of transplantation, and to focus the nation on the need for more organs. Our entire transplant family, working together,
gives hope and encouragement and saves lives. We are so much more than an athletic competition.
Since the spread of the virus, we have closely followed the experts as they have reviewed data on patients, and the progression of the disease. Despite some positive news on increased testing and possible existing drug therapies, there is a growing concern that conducting our event in July would not be in the best interest of our community.
Our number one priority is your health and well-being, and with that objective in mind, we have decided to postpone the 2020 Transplant Games scheduled for July 17-22, 2020. This was a heart-breaking decision for our team, but we can promise you that once the COVID-19 health crisis subsides, we will announce a new set of dates for the New Jersey Games. Rescheduling is a massive undertaking and we will collaborate closely with our incredible partners and sponsors and are committed to bringing you the biggest and best Games ever.
We understand that many of you will have questions, and our intent is to get you the answers that you need. However, we ask that you please be patient as we work through the enormous number of details while under government restrictions.
Registration for the Games is currently closed and will re-open when the new dates are confirmed. All existing registrations will automatically be applied to the new dates.
