A double lung transplant recipient is training to run the Kentucky Derby half-marathon this year

Steve Lindsey underwent a double lung transplant after suffering extreme scarring from pulmonary fibrosis. Steve now uses his new lungs to the fullest, climbing 38 floors at the PNC Tower for the Fight for Air Climb.
