Join us this November to help raise vital awareness of Pulmonary Hypertension!

All are invited to come out and join us for this short walk that will help educate the public about the challenges faced by those living with PH while raising funds to support the programs and services offered by PHA Canada. Come out and walk with us or just to support the other walkers.

The 6-minute walk test is a standard PH test which measures the distance that a patient can walk on a flat, hard surface. The test is designed to assist in evaluating PH patients. In order to educate participants about PH, PHA Canada will provide participants with companion sheets that outline symptoms at specific markers during the event. Participants may walk the 6-minute route several times to raise funds for PH.

For more information, contact Jennifer Gendron, Regional Coordinator, PHA Canada at (506) 832-4898 or jgendron@phacanada.ca
