The Transplant Games of America take place every other year, with the World Games taking place during the off years. The Games are a place for recipients, living donors and donor families to gather and celebrate the most precious gift of life. Recipients make up the majority of athletes, with living donors being allowed to take part in some events. Donor families are able to experience the joy of seeing what a difference their gift really can make and there are numerous workshops and ceremonies dedicated to these families. The RIODAC members attending this year, three athletes and two supporters, are extremely honored to be part of this amazing experience.
