What is Team Transplant?
Team Transplant was established at the UWMC in 2001 to promote physical activity and organ donation awareness. Led by four-time Olympic Marathon Trials qualifier, Alysun Deckert, a registered dietitian at UWMC. The team’s goal is to train for and complete local walking and running events. In the past, these events have included: Issaquah Salmon Days, Dawg Dash, Amica Insurance Seattle Marathon & Half Marathon, the Seattle Rock'n Roll Half Marathon, and the Snoqualmie Valley 10k & Half Marathon.
The University of Washington Medical Center (UWMC) Team Transplant, provides a life-changing wellness program where transplant recipients, living donors, and supporters are encouraged to train for running or walking events by following a regular exercise plan, healthy diet, surrounded by a community of support while at the same time promoting organ donation awareness.
