Astellas launches campaign to promote activity in transplant recipients

19th August 2016

Astellas has partnered with the World Transplant Games Federation (WTGF) to launch Fit for Life!, a global programme encouraging transplant recipients to take part in physical activity.

The WTGF will begin accepting applications for Fit for Life! ambassadors next month, with transplant recipients from participating countries to submit online essays explaining how they have stayed fit and active in their post-transplant lives.

These ambassadors will be responsible for inspiring other patients and will represent the WTGF by speaking about their experiences at transplant clinics, participating in sporting programmes and encouraging others to attend transplant games.

An independent judging panel will review the submissions and select 12 ambassadors from around the world to receive a trip to Chicago to be recognised during an international test rugby match between the New Zealand and Ireland.

Astellas' support of this programme extends its long-term history of collaboration with the WTGF.

Yoshihiko Hatanaka, president and chief executive officer at Astellas, said: "Astellas is committed to continuing to work with partner organisations to respond to transplant recipient challenges and address unmet medical needs."
