Donor Games 2022 Championship

In a general population survey, 80% of respondents felt that donating a kidney would negatively affect their health. The Donor Games Championship refutes this widely held misconception by showcasing the impressive health and fitness of donors from around the country.

In the second annual Donor Games Championship, competitors including kidney donors, transplant recipients and National Kidney Registry employees and partners came together in a spirited competition testing strength and endurance.
