Transplant Recipients International Organization

San Francisco Bay Area TRIO has been proud to be the fiscal sponsor of the 2016 Team NorCal at the Transplant Games of America.  We congratulate all of the participants.  They all were winners!

Team NorCal, sponsored by our SF Bay Area TRIO chapter, amassed a load of medals (47 at last count!) at the Transplant Games completed in Cleveland, Ohio.

But perhaps our greatest highlight was Anna Modlin being awarded recognition as the Top Female Athlete of the entire games. This inspiring woman served as our co-team manager as well as a medal winner in a host of events.  A double lung recipient, she was featured in the "Power of Two" movie about Ana Stenzel and Isa Stenzel Byrnes.  

Highlights of the games, and there were many, will be part of the July-August issue of our newsletter.
