May 5, 2014 – Lend A Hand for World PH Day

May 5th 2014 is the third annual World PH Day. World PH Day was initiated by the Spanish PH Association (Asociación Nacional de Hipertensión Pulmonar) in 2012 and has become a global event. On May 5th, PH communities and organizations across the globe will be holding events towards a greater awareness of PH. Fundraisers and awareness events are happening from Bulgaria to Israel to Japan, and everywhere in between. For a complete list of World PH Day events, visit the World PH Day official website.

To recognize this annual day, PHA Canada is encouraging members of the PH community to Lend a Hand for PH. You may recognize this campaign from Awareness Month 2011. In 2011, we collected 1964 handprints. This year, we’ve set the ambitious goal of over 3000 handprints: this represents 1 handprint for every Canadian with PH. We need your help to achieve our goal.
