Other Info

Pulmonary hypertension, or PH, is increased pressure in the pulmonary arteries.  These arteries carry blood from the heart to the lungs to pick up oxygen.  PH causes symptoms such as shortness of breath during routine activity (for example, climbing stairs), tiredness, chest pain, and a racing heartbeat.  As the condition worsens, its symptoms may limit all physical activity.  Currently there is no cure for PH.

A 1-mile walk around the lake has been added to the event.  Also a silent auction, kids entertainment area, and educational forum is included in the event.
