THE STORY:

Save the date and plan to join us for our sixth annual “COLORADO PH IN THE PARK” event to support Pulmonary Hypertension research and education. A 5K and 1-Mile Run/ Walk, a Post-Event Expo, Kids Area, Silent Auction, and an Educational Session will make this an exciting day you will not want to miss!

 

The Pulmonary Hypertension Association (PHA), The University of Colorado Denver, and Children’s Hospital Colorado will be hosting this event on Sunday October 4, 2105 at 8:00 a.m. at City Park in Denver.

 

We are holding this event to increase awareness about pulmonary hypertension (PH) and to raise funds for research and education. We need your help to make this “Run for PHun” another successful  event!

 

This event continues a unique collaboration between adult and pediatric centers.  The University of Colorado Denver and Children’s Hospital Colorado are national and world leaders in PH research and patient care.  As you may be aware, the University of Colorado at Denver and Children’s Hospital Colorado are  located at the Anschutz Medical Campus, where over 1 million square feet of adult and pediatric research space has been completed, creating one of the largest healthcare research complexes in the world.

 

Pulmonary hypertension is a rare, under-diagnosed, and often misdiagnosed disease. The disease causes high blood pressure in the pulmonary arteries. This makes it harder for the blood to flow through the lungs to pick up oxygen.  This causes potentially life-threatening consequences such as right heart failure. When diagnosed in time, treatments can be administered that improve quality of life and may prolong it. At this time there is no cure; but we believe through research we will find the cure for PH.

 

We appreciate your willingness to help us raise money and awareness to fight this disease.  On behalf of PH patients, family members, caregivers and friends, we thank you for your participation and support in this annual event.
