A PH Patient's heart often beats at a marathoner's pace...
Our cause: We are racing for people who live with a disease called pulmonary hypertension. This is a disease of high pressures in the arteries in the lungs that makes people short of breath, lightheaded, and can make doing the simplest tasks like walking up stairs, playing outside, going for a hike, or carrying groceries into the house exhausting tasks. Although there are several medical treatments available, there is still no cure, and sometimes people even need to get a lung transplant. We are racing to help change all that by raising awareness about the disease and funds to find a cure. 100% of profits raised will be donated to fund pulmonary hypertension research, supporting those who dedicate their hours, days, and nights to curing this disease.
