Participation

Who

Can Enter?

Entry is open to all recipients of life supporting allografts (heart, intestine, kidney, liver, lung, pancreas) and hemopoietic cell (bone marrow) transplants from other individuals or species which require or have required the use of immunosuppressive drug therapies.

 

Living donors and immediate family members of deceased organ or tissue donors (parents, siblings, spouses/partners and children) are also eligible to compete in selected events in their own division. Living donors must be nine months post-donation.

 

Competitors must have been transplanted for at least 1 year, with stable graft function, be medically fit and have trained for the events in which they have entered.

If a recipient or living donor competitor is at least 6 months post-procedure, with stable graft function, has been training and has permission from his own doctor, his entry may be considered by the WTGF medical committee and be allowed. All competitors must be medically approved by their physician to compete.

Age participation is from 4 years to 80+ years.

 

Competitors are expected to understand and be familiar with the rules for their sport(s) and the WTGF Rules for the World Transplant Games. Proficiency in chosen sports is required.

 

Participation in both the Summer and Winter games are coordinated through the Member Association in your country.
