Description

We are currently recruiting team members to participate in the 2018 Donate Life Transplant Games of America (TGA) August 2-7 in Salt Lake City, Utah. At this meeting we will welcome new members, discuss team goals for SLC, talk about fundraising and sponsorship opportunities, and catch up on all our donor awareness activities.

Gift of Hope has graciously allowed us to use meeting space. Please park in the large parking lot on the south side of the building. You will enter the building through the employee entrance, which is on the south side of the building. A Gift of Hope/Team Illinois team member will be in the foyer greeting and escorting people inside. If for some reason no one is there, you'll notice a phone mounted on the wall. You may dial zero to speak to one of the Donor Resource Center staff and let them know you're here for the Team Ilinois meeting, Then, you'll be escorted into the building. Thanks for your consideration.

Also, it's important that you register with Team Illinois online at www.goteamillinois.org to continue to receive information on the 2018 TGA. There are two types of participants: athletes and supporters.

To participate as an Athlete, you must meet the following requirements:

  • Have received an organ, tissue, bone marrow or cornea transplant (regardless if you are taking anti-rejection meds, have full organ function, or not) or you are a living donor (of any organ or tissue).
  • Transplant occurred at least nine months prior to the start of the Games.
  • You are in healthy condition and your doctor has signed a medical waiver allowing you to participate.

Note: Transplant Recipients and Living Donors can also attend the Games as non-athletes.

Support Team Members include:

  • Family members and friends of athletes
  • Hero donor families
  • Transplant professionals
  • Other individuals who wish to support the team.
