NORTH CAROLINA TRANSPLANT ATHLETES
WELCOME TO OUR WEBSITE!
North Carolina Transplant Athletes, or Team NC, is a group of organ recipients, caregivers, living donors, donor family members, and others in the transplant community who raise awareness for organ donation while fundraising to travel to the Transplant Games of America every two years. In addition to being an Olympic-style sports and talent competition, the Games is about remembering, making connections, sharing stories of triumph, and — most importantly — celebrating life! Learn more about the Transplant Games of America.
Want to join us? Come to a meeting!
Team NC meets on the first Sunday of the month at 7:00 pm. We send emails about meetings, Transplant Games-related information, and other group opportunities. We welcome new members so don’t be shy! Join our email list now to start receiving meeting notifications.
Our team is mostly made up of organ recipients. But we are not all athletes! Most of us try to be active and healthy people. Most importantly, we all share a special joie de vivre that comes from knowing how precious life can be. Read more about our team!
There are many ways to support our team. In addition to sponsorships and financial donations (which are tax-deductible!), we welcome collaboration ideas and donations of goods and services. We can always use a hand! Please, just get in touch. You can also follow us on Facebook or Instagram.
Thank you for helping to spread the word about Team NC and the Transplant Games of America!
Showing the world what transplant can do!
Together we make all the difference

KIDNEY DISEASE: my history
It’s been my observation that every lung transplant puts you on the way to needing a kidney transplant. It just takes some people longer to get there...
Our team and supporters gathered for the 2018 Transplant Games of America.
