This week is Transplant Sport UK Awareness week. It is being run in association with The Society of Sports Therapists and Transplant Sport UK is a charity we are happy to support. Some of you will be aware that I do some work for The Society of Sports Therapists and act as Chair of the Communications Group. As part of this role and in the build up to the awareness week, I had the pleasure of interviewing Dr Gill Owens, who is an altruistic living donor. Details of the altruistic donor register can be found here.
Take a look at the interview below and hear in Gills own words why she became and organ donor and how she became a transplant athlete.
On Sunday 10th November I will be attending the inaugural Transplant Sport Conference in Coventry. I’m looking forward to learning more about working with these amazing athletes.
This week we are donating a portion of the takings from the clinics to Transplant Sport UK. If you would like to support this cause you can donate via the link below:
