Three Heart Transplant Recipients to Compete in Iron Man Triathlon

June 28, 2010

Three transplant athletes will compete in the PPD Beach2Battleship Iron Man relay in November!

NFT patient Brian Barndt received a heart transplant in 2005 and has since received multiple medals at the transplant games. Heart transplant recipient Kyle Garlett will also participate, along with Mark Black, who is a heart and double-lung transplant recipient.

The men hope to use this opportunity as a way to raise awareness about the vital need for organ donors. NFT wishes them the best of luck and we look forward to following them on this journey!
