Team Liberty, a program of the New Jersey Sharing Network, comes together at the Donate Life Transplant Games, and all year round, to promote the success of organ transplantation, to raise awareness for the urgent need of organ and tissue donation, and to honor donors and their families who have so generously given the gift of life. The team is comprised of organ, tissue, and cornea transplant recipients and their families, donor families, living donors, and transplant professionals from New York City, Long Island, the Hudson Valley, Northern and Central New Jersey, and Fairfield County, Connecticut. The men, women, and children of Team Liberty embody incredible spirit, courage, energy, inspiration, humor, sportsmanship, and friendship… just to name a few!
The Donate Life Transplant Games is a biennial, multi-day athletic competition for organ, tissue, and cornea transplant recipients and living donors ages 2 – 99, regardless of athletic ability, and also offers inspiring programs for transplant recipients and their families, donor families, and living donors. Over 40 teams compete in 12 sports including badminton, ballroom dancing, basketball, bowling, cycling, darts, golf, racquetball, 5K race, swimming, table tennis, track and field, trivia, volleyball, and more. It’s an awesome event that that celebrates life and honors our nation’s donors, with tears and laughter sprinkled throughout. It’s not to be missed!
Team Liberty's mission is to promote organ and tissue donation and to honor donors, recipients, their families, and supporters through participation in the biennial Donate Life Transplant Games as well as at other events year-round. Team Liberty's goal in a two-year period is to increase overall team membership by 5%, to increase multicultural, corneal, and tissue Team Liberty athletes at the Games by 5%, to increase organ donation/transplantation volunteer hours as a team by 5%, and to add at least 100 donors to DLA's National Donor Registry.
