Die Mission der Spiele
The goal of the games: Draw the public’s attention to the subject of organ donation to increase organ donation rates in Switzerland
The games are a way of demonstrating how people can practice sport after having undergone a transplant and showing the benefits of sport in rehabilitation post-transplant to rally the public to the cause of organ donation.
Media coverage of sporting and awareness events encourages companies, government bodies and the public in general to think about organ donation and make informed decisions on the subject.
“The World Transplant Games is a contest with all winners. They have all been saved for a great and rich life through a vital transplant. Without donors, none of these transplants would have been possible”
The World Transplant Games show how organ donation and transplantation save lives and that organ recipients can live life to the full post-transplant and participate in sport, just like others. The games are also a homage to organ donors and their families.
Yes to organ donation!
