Color PHor a Cure 5K
The best, biggest, and brightest 5k is coming to Jennings, LA this October called “Color PHor A Cure”. The only question is “Are you ready for the most memorable and colorful 5K of your life?”
Color PHor A Cure 5k is a unique experience focused less on speed and more on crazy color fun with friends and family. Whether you are a casual morning walker or an Olympic athlete, the 3 miles of Color PHor A Cure course will be the most memorable and colorful run of your life. You’ll end up looking like a kindergarten art class gone wrong!
Color PHor A Cure was founded by Josh & Lindsey Belt of Jennings, Louisiana. In January of 2013, Joel Belt (Josh & Lindsey’s 2 year old son) was diagnosed with severe primary pulmonary hypertension (PPH). After 42 days in 3 different hospitals, Joel was sent home with very intensive medication with the hope to improve his quality of life. Since there is NO CAUSE found for why Joel has PPH, that also means there is NO CURE. He currently has only two options at the moment: medicine for life or a double lung transplant. Joel needs your help in raising funds to find a cure in his lifetime.
100% of all the proceeds from the race will go to help raise awareness and research funds for PHA’s Dr. Robyn J. Barst Pediatric Research and Mentoring Fund for Pulmonary Hypertension. This is the only pediatric PH research fund in all of the United States. You can learn more about PH at phassociation.org
