In May 2020, about 150 organ transplanted or dialysis athletes and about the same number of accompanying persons (relatives or other related people) are expected. It hosts competitions in ball sports, team sports, swimming, cycling, golf, pétanque, bowling and athletics. The festive closing event on Saturday evening ends the German Championships.
An attractive supporting program is organized by the regional sports clubs and schools, creativity knows no bounds here. There will also be information events on the topic of "life-saving organ donation". Television, radio and press will be there to accompany the event. Already in the run-up to the championship a broad media attention campaign takes place.
An organ transplant or dialysis changes the life of a person sustainably. The sport brings body and mind together. Sport connects the people.
The importance of this event for the athletes themselves and the enormous public image on the topic of lifesaving organ donation need not be emphasized. The willingness to donate organs is very high in our population, but the implementation urgently needs reform because of the shameful low number of organs actually donated.
The Federal Minister of Health, Jens Spahn, takes over the patronage of the German Championships from 21 - 24 May 2020 in Simmern / Hunsrück and surroundings.
This underlines the central importance of the topic of organ donation in our society.
Around 39,000 € are needed to finance the event. Of this, about € 27,000 is for overnight accommodation, € 9,000 for meals and about € 3,000 for sports equipment.
The Rotary Club Simmern and TransDia Sport Germany e.V. bear in large part the financial burden. The donations go 100% into the financing of the event. The sports facilities are provided free of charge by the district, the cities and the golf club Hahn e.V. The project is mainly supported by a broad voluntary commitment.
However, all this is not possible without financial support from people who care about the topic of life-saving organ donation and social and sporting cooperation with less-favored people. Therefore, we promote your help!
Become a sponsor of the German Championships of Transplanted and Dialysis Patients 2020 in Hunsrück. Help make this sports event an unforgettable event. Any surplus goes to TransDia Sport Deutschland e.V. for the future support of its great members.
