Race Against PH At Stanford University

Rainbows and Races: PH 8th Annual Race Against PH
By Harry Rozakis — PHA Board Member

PHA logo on feetThe 8th Annual Race Against PH at Stanford was a great success with somewhere between 1,200 and 1,500 people showing up for the event. Despite the pouring rain the day before and a slight mist early morning Sunday, the most incredible rainbow appeared in time for the race. It was an amazing day with the temperature rising to about 67 degrees.

Dr. Jeff Feinstein (Director of the Vera M. Wall Center) and Dr. Rohan Zamanian spoke and commended PHA for their great work. I thanked the crowd for their support and talked about how PHA works day and night to raise money for a cure. The event raised approximately $55,000 for PH research.

I had a great opportunity to walk the race and speak with patients, friends and family members. Taking part in the race was a 10-year-old girl named Amy who several months ago had a heartlung transplant. I met an elderly woman who lost her husband two years ago to PH and now was walking with her friend in memory of him. Many representatives of the Ewing family had a team. The very first Race Against PH was held in honor of the late Patricia Ewing.
