Congratulations to the Sheffield Adult Transplant Games Team

 

The 2019 BRITISH TRANSPLANT GAMES was held in Newport, 25 - 29 JULY

 

The Sheffield team of 11 competitors won 9 medals, and also received 5 medals for the 5k Donor Run.

 

They all really enjoyed it and appreciated that they are all fit enough to attend and take part in their chosen event, with the chance to say thankyou. 

The gala dinner was lovely with entertainment from the Valli Boys UK. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The 2018 British Transplant Games took place in Birmingham from the 2nd to 5th August. 

The games are a way of saying thankyou to the donor families and showing what life is like after a transplant.

Sheffield sent a small team to the Games, including ;

4 people in the ten pin bowling who won 1 gold and 1 bronze medal.

1 person in 2 cycling events and he won gold in both events.

3 people in the 5k walk and won 1 silver medal.

The team also took part in archery,snooker,golf and the mini marathon.

 

 

 

The British Transpant Games is the flagship event of Transplant Sport. The event aims to demonstrate the benefits of transplantation whilst increasing public awareness of the need for more people to join the NHS Organ Donation Register. The Games bring together the transplant community to celebrate the gift of life and have been staged annually since 1978 in different cities across the UK.

 

 

Athletes from Sheffield regularly take part in both the British and World Transplant Games. There has been a Sheffield Transplant Team attending the British Transplant Games for at least the past twenty-five years!

 

SAKA is proud to provide financial and other assistance to the Sheffield Team.
