Transplant Sport Kids Fun Weekend

Transplant Sport Kids Fun Weekend

18th May 2019  11am - 4pm

Kendal Snowsports Club

Children and their families will be getting together on Saturday 18th May 2019 to have fun, try new activities and make friends with other children and families who have experienced the difficult but amazing transplant journey. Many will have missed out on all sorts of opportunities due to prolonged illness or ill health within their family. But now is the opportunity for them to catch up with those of us who have not been seriously ill, thanks to the decisions of their organ donor and organ donor family.

As well as supporting children and families in this way, Transplant Sport (TS) promotes a greater awareness of the benefits of transplantation and the desperate need for more people to join the NHS Organ Donor Register and, equally importantly, to discuss their wishes with their loved ones. Even though there is an increase in organ donors this year there are still too many who die before an organ is available.

On Saturday 18 May, Kendal Snowsports are providing a day of activities for children from transplant families. Very few of the children have experienced snow sports so having the chance to ski or board and to ride the tubes will be a fantastic and fun challenge. Thanks to Kendal Snowsports for their amazing generosity in providing use of their facilities and instructors and covering all the costs themselves.
