The 2022 Transplant Games are being held this week in San Diego!
A big parade was held for participants this morning along Harbor Drive. (Which I just missed!)
This evening the Opening Ceremony will be held at the San Diego Convention Center.
As their website explains: Every two years the Transplant Games of America gathers together thousands of transplant recipients, living donors, donor families, individuals on the waiting list, caregivers, transplant professionals, supporters and spectators for the world’s largest celebration of life.
Transplant recipients and donors will compete in many different sporting events through this Wednesday. Most of the competition will be at the Convention Center. It will also be the location of the Transplant Games of America Village, and according to the Schedule of Events, the public is welcome!
I think I’ll go tomorrow. I’d like to watch a bicycling competition that will be held Sunday morning at Embarcadero Marina Park South, just behind the Convention Center.
Would you like to become involved–perhaps by becoming an organ donor yourself? Check out the 2022 Transplant Games web page here.
I live in downtown San Diego and love to walk around with my camera! You can follow Cool San Diego Sights via Facebook or Twitter!
