California Chapter of Pulmonary Hypertension Association (PHA) to Hold Second Annual Long Beach O2 breathe Walk at El Dorado Regional Park
Date:11/10/2015

The California Chapter of the Pulmonary Hypertension Association (PHA) will host the Second Annual Long Beach O2 breathe Walk in Long Beach, Calif. on Saturday, November 14, 2015, at 9 a.m. PT at El Dorado Regional Park. The O2 breathe Walk is a powerful and inspiring fundraising campaign from PHA, which brings together families and communities to honor pulmonary hypertension patients and loved ones lost to the disease. The event also raises awareness of the importance of finding a cure for pulmonary hypertension and providing services for pulmonary hypertension patients. Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is a rare and debilitating lung disease in which high blood pressure in the arteries of the lungs affects the functioning of the heart and can lead to right heart failure.

The O2 breathe Walk is a family-friendly, non-competitive one to two-mile walk route and is accessible to all fitness levels. There is no minimum for fundraising, but participants who raise $100 or more will receive a t-shirt and food the day of the walk.

The Long Beach O2 breathe Walk will kick off with festivities and registration opening at 9 a.m. PT at El Dorado Regional Park, Long Beach and the walk will start at 10:30 a.m. The event also includes music, food, a team photo area, kid-friendly activities, a Survivor Lounge, and more.
