The Australian Transplant Games is coming to Canberra in October, 2024 and we need your help to spread the word about this exciting event and the underlying message of the importance of registering as an organ and tissue donor.  The Games are a celebration of the greatest gift of all – the gift of life where transplant recipients, living donors and donor families come together to celebrate life through sport.  Every athlete involved has an amazing story to share and has overcome incredible hurdles to be at the Games.

You can help raise awareness about this event by sharing our story on your social media, newsletters, websites or even putting up posters in your staffroom or clubrooms. 

If you would like a Games representative or transplant athlete to come and talk to your staff or organisation about the Games or require printed materials, please email

General – About the Australian Transplant Games

Australia’s most inspirational sporting event, the Australian Transplant Games is held every two years. The Games provide living proof of the success of transplantation and encourage all Australians to discuss organ and tissue donation with their families.

Many transplant recipients use the Games as motivation to a greater end goal, setting various health and fitness targets along the way as they train.

The Australian Transplant Games is also the country’s largest awareness activity for organ and tissue donation. Transplant Australia boasts an enviable record of influencing public understanding of organ and tissue donation through the staging of the Australian Transplant Games. DonateLife is the Official Partner of the 2024 Australian Transplant Games.

We encourage everyone to register as an organ and tissue donor and share your decision with your family. It only takes 3 taps on your Medicare App or you can register online at

The Games cover a multitude of sports and recreational activities, giving individuals the opportunity to try sports they have not participated in before.

The spirit of the Australian Transplant Games is to encourage individuals to be involved in a sporting competition, and to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Many competitors previously may not have been able to engage in any sort of sporting activity due to their illness. The quality and determination of competitors has led to many participants being selected to represent Australia at the Australian Transplant Games.
