Countdown to Race Day
A global pandemic has presented challenges to Houston as the host city for the 2021 World Transplant Games, but we are still committed to the mission of increasing awareness for transplantations worldwide. With that goal in mind, we have organized a virtual event next year, which will allow everyone the opportunity to participate in an international athletic activity.
The Harris County – Houston Sports Authority is proud to present the 2021 World Transplant Games 5K AnyWay Virtual Race, benefiting the World Transplant Games Federation. This virtual global event with the hopes of virtually uniting transplant survivors, donors, their families, and supporters from around the world.
What is a 5K AnyWay?
It’s a unique opportunity for you to complete a 5K AnyWay you like! Run, walk, swim, bike, row – the option is yours! Complete your activity anytime from Saturday, May 28th through Friday, June 5th. After finishing your 5K post your time on the link provided and watch as we make our way around the world! We just ask that you have fun, share pictures of your adventure and help us spread the word of the importance of transplant donors.
100% of donations raised will help support transplanted children get active and be part of the award-winning Fit for Life global program. The Fit for Life! initiative aims to elevate the importance of physical activity and organized sport at all levels in the long term management and well-being of transplant recipients.
The importance of a transplant recipient remaining as ‘healthy around their transplanted organ as possible’ through physical activity has been confirmed by research. Our mission is to assist recipients to rehabilitate and focus on their fitness, health and well-being, while providing essential support around exercise, mental well-being and nutrition. With your support we can expand opportunities for our transplanted children to support them in being Fit for Life!
Around the World AnyWay Celebration
The final night of the Games is always a special moment. Since you can’t come to us, we’re coming to you. We’re going to circle the globe with a star-studded cast and drop in on every continent. We’re blending our unique ideas together with the tradition of Cultural Night and taking AnyWay to a new level.
We promise the finale will be engaging, include pieces of a closing ceremony and highlight the amazing stories of the participants and their countries. It will be our gift to you as we celebrate a unique week and continue to support each other as one big happy transplant family.
