Transplant Australia Charity Challenge

A new way for members to fundraise to attend the Australian and World Games: the Transplant Australia Charity Challenge!

The Transplant Australia Charity Challenge program is designed to assist members to raise funds to:

  • Support those waiting for a transplant
  • Promote organ and tissue donation through the Transplant Games
  • Contribute to their costs to attend the Games

How the Charity Challenge Program is making a difference?

  • Supporting those in greatest need – those waiting for a transplant;
  • Empowering transplant recipients, donor families and living donors to promote organ and tissue donation in their local community;
  • Helping to professionalise members’ fundraising efforts in association with the Games; and
  • Contributing to the growth of the Transplant Games by helping more members to attend

It’s all about getting inspired, making a difference and giving back!

What Transplant Australia is doing with the funds?

Any additional funds raised above a member’s games costs will go towards our Journey of Hope support program which is providing:

  • An online education tool to help patients
  • A book of inspirational stories pre and post-transplant (DUE TO LAUNCH SOON!)
  • Care packs containing practical support items for patients in hospital
  • In-hospital support for services not covered by the health care system
  • Financial assistance to cover accommodation costs and travel expenses
