The 2014 Donate Life Transplant Games of America were held in Houston, TX July 11-15. Team SC consisted of 21 competitors, 15 donor families and 30 supporters. Congratulations to our competitors on winning a total of 36 medals in their competitions – 17 Gold, 10 Silver and 9 Bronze. Complete listing of our medal winners (PDF 28KB).
Our donor families attended seminars and workshops, a special quilt-pinning ceremony honoring their loved ones and presented medals to winners at some events. A special highlight of the Games was the Donor Tribute Ceremony, when all donors (deceased and living) were recognized. We were honored to have our own Sandy Roberson (Team SC member) speak on behalf of all living donors.
The 2016 Games will be held in Cleveland, OH. If you’re interested in joining Team SC, contact Team Manager Shirley McAdams at LifePoint – 800-462-0755 (X 1080) or McAdamsS@lifepoint-sc.org.
Everyone in the transplant community knows that it takes power to give the gift of life through organ donation, survive the wait and thrive after receiving a transplant. Twin sisters and double lung transplant recipients Ana Stenzel and Isa Stenzel Byrnes, and other members of the transplant community worldwide, show what power can do in the documentary film “The Power of Two.” Called “compelling” and “poetic” by the Wall Street Journal, and an “inspiring triumph” by Golden Globe® nominated actor Jack Black, this winner of ten film festival awards has entertained, educated and inspired audiences globally.
