 Transplant Games Kick Off in the US

While the global media attention is on the 2012 London Olympics that kicked off this week, over 1,000 organ donation recipients and donors will gather in Grand Rapids, Michigan, to take part in the Transplant Games of America.

The event will start with an Opening Ceremony with participants from more than 40 states in the country competing in 12 different sporting events.

This will be the 22nd annual event celebrating organ donation and the organizers hope that it will create awareness and educate those who are in dark about the organ donation process.

"It is a moving visual tribute to the families of those who have lost their lives and became organ donors, an honor to the living donors, a celebration of athletes whose lives were saved because of the selfless sacrifice of those willing to give them that second chance, and the very best place to celebrate the gift of life and the miracle of organ donation and transplantation", Utah Kidney Foundation's Sharon Miller said.
