We Want You!

Our team has been in existence for many years and every year it grows stronger. Its strength comes from the people who make up the team.

  • Are you a transplant recipient?
  • Are you on dialysis?
  • Are you a supporter?
  • Could you be a team sponsor (we are looking for a kit sponsor)?

YOU can join our team – newcomers are welcome year round, as is financial support!

LABEL

We have just started an online fundraising campaign to help get as many transplant recipients as possible to next year’s World Transplant Games in Newcastle. Every Euro donated will help us achieve our goal of getting as many transplant recipients as possible doing as much physical activity as possible. Please click on the link below.

Support our Team for WTG2019

With the media coverage that our team will generate through their achievements at the Games the key message about the importance and success of organ donation for transplantation will reach a wider audience – the bigger our team, the bigger our impact!
