Team Alleghenies Transplant's Philosophy And Membership Expectations

Organ, eye and tissue donation is a selfless act of love and compassion from one person for the benefit of another, in many instances a complete stranger. In this spirit of altruism, each team member is encouraged to adopt the philosophy that their involvement extends beyond their personal participation in the Games and their team.

Beyond their work with the Games, team members work together to serve the greater good of the public community and the donation/transplant family, continuing the legacy of donors and donor families everywhere.

Team members-- including recipients, living donors, donor families and other supporters-- can serve in so many ways beyond their involvement with the Games by helping others along their donation or transplant journey, mentoring another in their grief process, providing support to caregivers and/or by joining fellow teammates, CORE, Transplant Centers and the transplant community at large in raising awareness about organ, eye and tissue donation.

The team members’ primary goal is to promote organ, eye and tissue donation awareness through participation in Donate Life: Transplant Games of America and other related activities. Each member shall apply to be part of the team to:

  • Actively support the goals and objectives of Team Alleghenies and the Games, including raising public awareness about organ, eye and tissue donation, before, during and after the Games
  • Act as an advocate for Team Pittsburgh and the transplant community at large
  • Involve the entire local community in activities to achieve the Team’s goals
  • Assist in building and sustaining local donation and transplantation-related efforts through fundraising, volunteerism, etc.
