Transplant Games... News TRANSPLANT GAMES...
On behalf of the TGA Board of Directors, American Association of Tissue Banks (AATB), Novartis Pharmaceuticals, and the Joseph Kratzer family we are pleased to annnounce the 2016 TGA Travel Award winners. The process of selecting the winners is incredibly difficult. Out of the hundreds of applicants, there were no losers. Everyone who submitted for an award was deserving and having to say "no" to anyone is painful and difficult.

Thank you all for your thoughtful and introspective entries. Congratulations to everyone for their commitment to the cause and for being a part of the Transplant Games.

** A special note in memory of Joe Kratzer who passed away in 2014. Joe was a terrific member of Team Ohio and his family selected the Transplant Games to receive contributions in Joe's memory. Those funds were set aside and the Ohio applicants noted below (with asterisks) were awarded specifically from those donations.

Please note that applicants must attend the 2106 Donate Life Transplant Games in order to receive these grants. A separate note will be sent to award winners requesting W-9 information. Checks have been sent out.
