Canadian Transplant Association

Our Mission:

The CTA encourages and motivates transplant recipients to maintain a healthy lifestyle by supporting athletic and other awareness events.

We are a registered non-profit organization comprised of transplant recipients, athletes, and volunteers dedicated to promoting organ donation through public advocacy and events including the Canadian Transplant Games and World Transplant Games.

We are also a support network, offering programs to help donors and recipients live full lives after transplantation.

Join our Team which is called The Donorthoners – A group of runners & walkers raising awareness for Organ & Tissue Donation and raising funds for the CTA.

Our first steps took us along the streets of Toronto at the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon on October 21, 2018!

Four of us ran the full marathon dressed as organs! A liver, heart, kidney and a lung! Everyone else who ran or walked did so in our special “Donorthoner” t-shirts!

If you are interested in joining us, please contact for more details!
