UTA welcomes the 2018 Transplant Games of America to Salt Lake City! Participants will spend the next five days competing in sports like swimming, track and field and even ballroom dancing and poker to help promote the need for organ donation. Every competitor is a transplant donor or recipient.

Thousands of Transplant Games participants and volunteers will be riding TRAX this week to the opening ceremony at Smith’s Ballpark and events held at the Salt Palace Convention Center and other locations in and around Salt Lake City. We’re also supporting the games with a UTA shuttle that will transport participants and volunteers from Vivint Arena to West High School for an event. We’re honored to help Transplant Games visitors navigate the city and would like to wish everyone involved a safe and successful week.
