World Transplant Game celebration was held on 4 October 2015. This year, HKTSA has formed a team of 6 transplant recipients to join the Game in Mar del Plata in Argentina on 23-30 August 2015.

Dr. CH Leong and Dr. PY Leung are the officiating guests of the celebration ceremony. We are glad to announce that Hong Kong team has won 18 prizes (4 gold, 1 silver and 13 bronze medals) this year.

The 20th World Transplant Games will be held in Argentina from 23rd to 30th August 2015. Six patients, together with a medical team, from Hong Kong will attend this event. To highlight this meaningful event, a kick-off ceremony had been held on 9 August 2015. This is well covered by the media, reminding the public of extraordinary accomplishments achieved after organ donation.

 

World Transplant Game (Durban, South Africa from 29 July to 3 August 2013) Hong Kong Team captured the highest number of medal per athlete this year (1.85) with total 37 medals by 20 patient athletes (14 gold, 13 silver and 10 bronze medals). A celebration ceremony was hosted on 13 August 2013 in Queen Elizabeth Hospital. Prof SC Chan, accompanied by our guests Ms Rita Fan, Dr. WM Ko, Dr. CH Leong and Dr. PY Leung, has expressed congratulation to the team. The ceremony was well attended and reported by various public media and the importance of organ donation was highlighted again in the meeting. The Society would like to express particular gratitude to the medical team (Dr. WL Chak, Dr Bonnie Kwan, Ms ML Pong, Ms Ingrid Lam, Ms Cora Cheung and Mr. Ken Ip) for their contribution and support during the game. The next game will be held in Argentina in 2015.
