The Mission: To raise money for research grants to be allocated through the Pulmonary Hypertension Association. These grants will fund ground-breaking exploration in the medical and surgical treatments of pulmonary hypertension.
The Challenge for YOU: I am asking you personally to commit the month of March to one mile per day or 30 miles for the month to either walk, run, cycle or use an exercise machine. Find at least five people to sponsor you in your efforts at least $1/mile completed. You will have completed 1% of Team Phenomenal Hope's journey and raised $150 + for Pulmonary Hypertension Association (one of the top ranked charities world wide). Please direct your sponsors to this page so they can donate online which makes it easier for everyone!
Sincerely and much appreciation to all,
Diagnosed 2006 with Pulmonary Hypertension, a rare life-threatening condition with less than 30k people diagnosed and still no cure other than a double lung transplant. Please help me in our mission to find a cure!
