Chris Klug Foundation

Chris Klug Foundation (CKF) was founded in October 2003 by Olympic Bronze Medalist and liver transplant recipient, Chris Klug. Chris was 21 years old when he discovered he needed a transplant. He then spent 6 years on the transplant waitlist before receiving his transplant. Just 18 months later, he won a Bronze Medal at the 2002 Salt Lake City Winter Olympic Games. He started CKF to promote lifesaving organ, eye, and tissue donation, and work to improve the quality of life for those touched by transplantation. CKF uses the stories of organ donors, transplant candidates, and transplant recipients to inspire, alongside events, school courses, and webinars to educate. All with the end goal of encouraging individuals to give the gift of life and register as organ donors.
