2022 Donate Life Transplant Games of America!

July 29 – August 3, 2022 I San Diego County

The San Diego community will host the Donate Life Transplant Games of America this summer from July 29 – August 3, 2022. The Games are a multi-sport festival for individuals who have undergone life-saving transplant surgeries. Competition events are open to living donors, organ transplant recipients, and bone marrow, corneal and tissue transplant recipients. The six-day event includes a full schedule of special events that recognize the success of donation and transplantation while honoring the generosity of donors and their families. The successful bid was led by the San Diego County Credit Union Holiday Bowl.

“The decision to bring the Transplant Games to this community was made easier by the tremendous efforts of the SDCCU Holiday Bowl team in putting together an outstanding bid. The rich landscape and scenic beauty of the area enhances an unparalleled group of venues suitable for our transplant families. Add to this the chance to promote the efforts of major transplant centers like Scripps Health, Sharp Healthcare, and UC San Diego Health allows us to promote our mission of increasing awareness to the health benefits of organ, eye and tissue donation,” said Bill Ryan, President & CEO of the Transplant Life Foundation.

The Transplant Games of America will include over 20 competitions as well as a full program of special events.

“We at the SDCCU Holiday Bowl are so proud that we were successful in securing the bid for this prestigious event to come to San Diego,” said Mark Neville, CEO of the Holiday Bowl. “Our mission is to generate tourism and visibility for the San Diego region. The Transplant Games is going to be a tremendous event for the national transplant community and San Diego’s tourism industry. We’re fired up!”
