This event is to raise funds for the Pulmonary Hypertension Association. PHA’s mission is to extend and improve the lives of those effected by pulmonary hypertension. PH is a progressive disease in which the walls of the arteries of the lungs thickens and restricts blood flow, which causes the heart to work harder in order to get oxygen to the lungs. If left untreated life expectancy is 2.5 years from diagnosis. The treatments which are available are extremely expensive and cause many debilitating side effects. We can only hope for more research to find a cure for this disease.
