Heart transplant recipient runs for his life at Flying Pig


David Barber was one of thousands gathered at The Banks on the morning of Sunday, May 5, 2019, to participate in the 21st Flying Pig Marathon.

While his race-day goal may not have been unique, Barber’s reason for running and his journey to the Flying Pig’s “Starting Swine” certainly was.

“Aside from this being my first half marathon,” he said before running, “it’s also my first big race since last August when I received a heart transplant.”
