22nd World Transplant Games

The 22nd World Transplant Games will be held from 25 June to 2 July 2015 in Malaga, Spain. Every two years, more than 2,000 athletes from around 70 countries  take part in the largest international sporting event for transplant recipients, where they compete in 14 disciplines including track and field, swimming, cycling, table tennis, volleyball and pétanque. The event is intended to increase general awareness of the importance and benefits of organ donation and transplants. For participants, the games are an opportunity to say thank you to the donors, the participants’ own families as well as medical professionals and caregivers. A team representing Switzerland will also be on hand in Argentina. Swisstransplant will accompany the SWISS TEAM to Spain as their main sponsor and report on our athletes’ adventures on the Swisstransplant website.
