The walk will begin and end at the Brick Structure in Wasena Park. Food, drink and entertainment included in price of admission! We will also have a fun raffle selection available!
Schedule of events:

There is a nice playground next to the home base (brick structure) for the younger children. The event will be held rain or shine. Times are approximate.
Why your participation matters: Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is a debilitating, life-threatening illness that causes high blood pressure in the lungs, which produces progressive breathlessness, dizziness and fatigue and ultimately threatens life itself. There is currently no cure for PH, but there is hope. Events like ours help us raise PH awareness and funds for PH research and patient and family serving programs –bringing us one step closer to a cure. Walk participants are encouraged to set a personal fundraising goal of $250 to make this event a success.
Thanks for your support! Hope to see you there!
