The British Transplant Games are the flagship project of the charity Transplant Sport and have been in existence for over 40 years when the first “Transplant Olympics” took place in Portsmouth in 1978.

At that time, these Games were an international event and included teams from France, Greece and even the USA.

​Since these early beginnings with competitors, affectionately known as “99 blooming miracles”, the Games have grown and are held every year in different cities throughout the UK.

The Games aim to demonstrate the benefits of transplantation, encouraging transplant patients to regain fitness, whilst increasing public awareness of the need for more people to join the NHS Organ Donation Register and discuss their wishes with their families. They also seek to thank and celebrate donor families and the gift of life. The 2024 Games will be held in Nottingham between 1st and 4th August.

Simon Elmore says:-
“I wake up with a smile everyday, having died 5 times!
The British Transplant Games is the most amazing, heartwarming & life-changing experience you will ever encounter.
Children age 3, adults 80+ and families that have donated a family member's organs at one of the hardest times of their life, now being recognised for the gifts they have given all the people taking part together.
Organ Donation is the priority of the games.
Your support can and will make more dreams come true.
Thank you from the Transplant Family ❤️”
