Welcome to the Team Mid-South Transplant Games of America page.

VISIT OUR TEAM MID-SOUTH WEBSITE FOR COMPLETE INFORMATION.

This is a biennial event that began 22 years ago, and will be held this new year 2014 in Houston, Texas. Dates are: July 11-15.
TGA is a multi-sport festival event for individuals who have undergone life-saving transplant surgeries. Competitive events are open to living donors, organ transplant recipients, bone marrow recipients, and a limited number of corneal and tissue transplant recipients.

While the event centers around intense competition between an estimated 40 teams from across America, all chasing fold, silver and bronze medals, the event is so much more than an athletic event. The Transplant Games of America highlight the critical importance of organ, eye, and tissue donation, while celebrating the lives of organ donors and recipients, through the array of activities which occur both day and night.
