15TH AUS­TRALIAN TRANSPLANT GAMES

Hills to Hawkesbury Living Magazine - - MEMORIES -

NSW ath­letes are blitz­ing the medal count at the 15th Aus­tralian Transplant Games, with a haul of 55 gold medals.

Once on the brink of death and re­ly­ing on ma­chines to sur­vive, the transplant re­cip­i­ents are show­cas­ing their re­newed health in Aus­tralia’s most in­spi­ra­tional sport­ing event, clean­ing up in the swim­ming and cycling.

The Blues have fielded one of the largest teams at the Aus­tralian Transplant Games, with over 90 peo­ple from all over NSW ar­riv­ing to com­pete in West­ern Syd­ney – and cause the other states some headaches into the bar­gain.

The pur­pose of the Aus­tralian Transplant Games is to en­cour­age more Aussies to reg­is­ter to be­come or­gan donors at do­natelife.gov.au
