SOCIAL ACTIVITIES AND COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT
2022 Transplant Games
San Diego, CA
The 2022 Transplant Games were held in San Diego California, July 29th through August 3rd. No announcement has yet been made regarding the location of the 2024 games.
We have just begun meeting in person again after over a year of meeting only via Zoom. We meet every second Sunday of every month at 2:00pm. We meet at various locations, but mostl at the KODA offices on Linn Station Road. We are also hosting the meeting on Zoom for those who live too far away to make it to Louisville. All are welcome, both in person or via Zoom. Email us to add your name to the list to receive the Zoom link before each meeting.
July 16-21 2021
The 2020 games that were cancelled were held virtually in 2021. It was not the same as being there for sure, but a lot of the events were fun and competitive.
UPCOMING HEALTH FAIRS
Due to the Coronavirus there have been few to no health fairs. We usually participate in many over the course of the year as a way to educate the public about organ donation and especially to sign up people for the organ donor registry. It's always heartening to hear that so many have already signed up to be organ donors, but we still manage to find a few who haven't and we can sign them up there and then. We look forward to the resumption of the health fairs in the future.
The Kentucky State Fair is held each August and Second Chance has a booth that we share with Kentucky Lyons Eye Bank. It is an excellent way to spread the word about organ donation
