PIC: This Guy Completed A 5k After He Received A Double Lung Transplant Just A Few Weeks Ago


Inspirational story comin’ atcha this Monday morning.

Porterstown Park Run is an organised 5km that occurs every Saturday mornig at 9:30am in Porterstown, Dublin 15. An established set-up that encourages all to embrace the fresh air, regardless of your fitness levels. 

It’s become a bit of a breeding ground for inspirational people, with all people with all sorts of pre-existing conditions taking part. 

Just yesterday, the brains behind the operation took to their social media to congratulate Darragh – a runner who completed a 5km this weekend after undergoing a double lung transplant only 61 days previous. 

What a man. 

Darragh, looking suitably chuffed in his double lung transplant t-shirt, completed the Dublin route with ease. 

Now if that doesn’t get you to go to the gym tonight, nothing will…

G’wan Darragh!
