Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is a rare and often misdiagnosed disease. PH causes high blood pressure in the pulmonary arteries, making it harder for blood to flow through the lungs to pick up oxygen, which can lead to life-threatening consequences such as right heart failure. With early diagnosis, treatment can be administered with the hope to help patients live longer, fuller lives. Unfortunately, at this time there is no cure for PH, which is why fundraising and awareness-raising events like ours are so important.
Come join us for a 5K Fun Walk for a Cure in Santa Barbara! This event will raise awareness about pulmonary hypertension (PH) and 100% of proceeds will benefit research, finding a cure, and providing support for those struggling with this disease. The walk will take place at Chase Palm Park Center, 236 E Cabrillo, Santa Barbara, CA 93101.
There will also be a 6 Minute Fun Walk available to those with PH and/or others who prefer a shorter route. This route will be a short loop and feel similar to a 6-Minute Walk Test.
Walk sponsorships are available, ranging from the "PHriend" to "Periwinkle" levels. If you or your business is interested in sponsorship, please contact Dana Sager (info above, right). Checks should be made payable to the "Pulmonary Hypertension Association" and sent c/o Dana Sager, 2403 Castillo St #206, Santa Barbara, CA 93105.
We appreciate your willingness to help raise funds and awareness to fight pulmonary hypertension. We look forward to seeing you on August 18th!
