The World Transplant Games Federation is proud to announce Anzère-Arbaz, Switzerland as the host for its 10th winter games.
With breathtaking views across the Swiss Alps and carefully groomed slopes to over 2’400m, Anzère, with its neighbour Arbaz, is the perfect destination to meet transplated people from all over the world in a friendly and fun environment.
With competitions in many different disciplines from skiing and snowboarding to cross-country skiing and curling, the World Transplant Winter Games provides challenges and excitement in equal quantities and will leave you with memories to take home and cherish.
The overall mission of the World Transplant Games Federation is to get transplant recipients from across the world active and healthy around their transplanted organ. We need recipients to remain as fit and active as possible. The World Transplant Winter Games is an important event in our calendar and provides another goal for recipients to work towards. - Chris Thomas
In memory of Nicholas Green, a young American boy who was killed in Italy and whose family donated his organs for the benefit of others, we are proud to offer this fully-supervised camp as a separate event within the World Transplant Winter Games.
Unaccompanied transplanted children from around the world are invited to a week of fun on the snow, to mix with other transplanted children and gain confidence and independence.
It is such a thrill to be organising the Nicholas Cup for the 3rd time in Anzère. It is amazing to see the change in our young transplant recipients who spend a week with us. I always say 'they learn to fly with their own wings!' What is even better is that some of the kids that came to our first event will be working as volunteers with us. I am sure Nicholas would have approved. - Liz Schick
