Climbing Toward A Cure: Getting Involved During Awareness Month 2010

2010 Awareness Month FlameOctober 6, 2010 

PH Awareness Month this November is our chance to show the world what a community like ours can do when we’re committed to finding a cure.

This year’s Awareness Month theme, Climbing Toward A Cure, was inspired by Drs. Ray Benza and Bob Franz and Jessica Lazar, PA. Their Kilimanjaro climb and the 17 unity walks the climb inspired raised more than $130,000 for PH research and PHA programs. When you speak out during Awareness Month, you become part of the PH mountain climbing team.

Find out how you can get involved this November. Your efforts will lend a hand to other PH climbers across the country and around the world.
