TRIO Philadelphia members promote the success of organ transplant by participating in the biennual Olympic style athletic competitions that have been held over the past 20+ years as the “US Transplant Games” hosted by NKF. In 2012 the games are hosted differently, under the name “Transplant Games of America” or “TGA.“
In our region, the Gift of Life Donor Program sponsors “Team Philadelphia” with a long history of award winning success as the local transplant games organization, which TRIO Philadelphia totally supports.
The transplant games are truly a family event opportunity . . .
Funds for the team (and other OPO related community educational activities) are raised primarily through an annual April “DASH for Donor Awareness” run/walk event that currently draws over eight thousand participants held at the foot of the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
TRIO hosts a chapter information table at the DASH each year.
And then does the same for TRIO national at the big games event . . .
