If you have a body with a new part, You Are a World Transplant Athlete!!!

About Us

World Transplant Athletes’ purpose is to empower organ transplant recipients everywhere to engage in activities, exercise, and sport to live healthier, happier, longer lives by growing and promoting the benefits of physical activity.

Our Mission

To empower organ transplant recipients everywhere by demonstrating organ recipients participating in physical activities, exercise, and sport.

The World Transplant Athletes initiative is just what our community needed. Showcasing different transplanted athletes around the world who participate in various sports is a phenomenal way to feel connected to a large, worldwide community of inspirational and like-minded people. I wish a resource like this was available when I was going through my liver transplant in 2015.
