The Donor Run will form part of the 2018 Westfield Health British Transplant Games’ sporting programme which will take place in Birmingham this year from August 2-5.

Organised by charity Transplant Sport, the Games bring hundreds of transplant recipients together through sport to clearly demonstrate the life-saving potential of organ donation.

The Donor Run takes place each year, and is open to all transplant recipients, donor families and the general public.

The run is one of the event’s highlights explains Lynne Holt, Transplant Sport co-ordinator: “Transplant recipients, the families of organ donors and supporters of the Games come together at the Donor Run to walk or run in gratitude of all organ donors and their families.

“It is always very moving to see so many people whose lives have been saved thanks to organ and tissue transplants.

“It is also a chance for us to invite the general public along to take part and help spread the message about signing the Organ Donor Register, and most importantly, letting family know your wishes.”

Further details about the Route and Entry will be posted when available.
