The Westfield Health British Transplant Games hosts around 60 teams each year
Each team taking part in The Games stems from a hospital coordinator who then manages the team and recruits new members every year. Our biggest team has around 150 members and our smallest team has just two! If you have had a life – saving transplant – why not contact your transplant hospital to find your Team Manager and register your interest?
Team Members have been through life changing experiences and here you will find some stories of children and adults, both competitors and supporters who have been directly affected by organ transplantation and who take part in The British Transplant Games.
