DeWitt Take a Breath for PH

In memory of Mackenzie Grubich

DeWitt Take a Breath for PH

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page which is in loving memory of Mackenzie Jade Grubich. Mackenzie became one of God's precious angels on 12/1/2009 at the age of 5 after a valiant battle with chronic Pulmonary Hypertension.

Pulmonary Hypertension (PH) is high blood pressure in the arteries of the lungs that can lead to heart failure. PH patients experience symptoms such as shortness of breath, dizziness, fatigue, and blue lips. PH affects people of all ages, races and ethnic backgrounds and there is currently no cure for PH.

I'd like to ask for your help with a charitable donation for PH. Please consider supporting me in my fundraising efforts for PH with a tax-deductible donation. Any amount, great or small, helps to make a difference in the lives of people living with PH. Although Mackenzie lived with PH her entire life, she touched the lives of so many people with her kind heart and magnificient smile.

Please join us on May11,2013 for the DeWitt Take a Breath for PH and Get Moving for MS Half-Marathon/10K/5K/Kids .25 mile run. For additional information go to: All proceeds from the events and online fundraising will be split between the Pulmonary Hypertension Association and National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Last year we successfully raised $17,000. Our goal this year is to raise $20,000 for 2 great causes.

Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support my fundraising efforts.  Many thanks for your support -- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!

Thanks again!

Melinda Grubich
