World Transplant Games

Mark Graves, a member of the new (and growing!) pétanque club in Fresno, CA will represent the US at the 16th World Transplant Games in Bangkok, Thailand, starting on Aug 25.
Mark is a kidney & pancreas recipient and has been very active in national ànd international sport events, a great initiative started 25 years ago, that has increased public awareness and the number of organ donations.

This is the first time pétanque is on the roster, with a singles and a doubles competition. We wish him luck and are very proud he will wear our colors.
Look out for photos in September.
