"The World Transplant Games Federation, powered by the gift of life", represents more than 69 countries across the globe which compete in Summer and Winter games events.  The principlal aim of the Federation is to raise public awareness of the importance and benefits of organ donation by demonstrating the health and fitness that can be achieved post-transplant, and also to encourage all recipients to remain fit and healthy.

Currently plans are in progress for the 2019 world games which will be held in Newcastle Gateshead in North East England.

Colin White, Treasuer of the WTGF, is Team Manager with Transplant Team Ireland which is actively preparing for participation in the European Transplant & Dialysis Sports Championships taking place in Sicily next month.
