2018 12 01 The 6th Annual 6-Minute Walk for Breath
The Ottawa Heart Institute
1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

 

Since 2012 the Ottawa Pulmonary Hypertension Support Group, PHA Canada and myself have put on a fundraiser/support meeting called the "6 Minute Walk for Breath" It is an invitation to you and your family and friends to come out and participate as we join together to raise awareness of Pulmonary Hypertension. The purpose of the Walk is not only to raise funds and awareness, but also to educate the public on what it is like to live with pulmonary hypertension.First patients do the 6 Minute Walk around the trackNext family and friends walk for 6 minutes with masks and holding weights to feel what it is like for patients to do the walk. We then have a guest speaker (TBA) followed by a support group meeting, refreshments and a few prizes. Educational materials will be provided that give attendees a better understanding of this rare disease. A mail out with the final information will be sent from my office soon. All proceeds from the walk go to PHA Canada and will help fund programs for those living with pulmonary hypertension; these include patient support, awareness, research, education and advocacy programs.  You can set up pages for your friends, family and colleagues to donate to your walk.


 I hope to see you all there!   

Thanks and keep on phighting!
