Transplant Team Kicks Off Transplant Games Countdown on Friday


On Friday, transplant recipients and supporters of Team Utah/Idaho will come together to celebrate the countdown to the 2014 Transplant Games of America by signing the official Transplant Games flag, which is traveling across the nation. 

The flag signing and kickoff ceremony will officially launch Team Utah/Idaho’s bid to repeat as Team Cup champions, which they won at the Transplant Games in Grand Rapids, Michigan, in 2012. 

The Transplant Games flag will fly over BBVA Compass Stadium in Houston during the opening ceremonies of the Games next July. More than 3,000 transplant recipients will participate in 10 different competitions during the five-day event. 

Team Utah/Idaho is looking for transplant recipients to join the team for the 2014 Games. The Transplant Games are held every other year to recognize the accomplishments of individuals whose lives have been improved by eye, organ and tissue donation. 

More than 40 participating teams will sign the flag as it makes its way across the country.
