What it is all about: 5K family race, in honor of Jonah, to raise awareness and funds for pediatric pulmonary hypertension. Jonah was a ten-year-old boy who loved life. Everyone knew and loved Jonah because of his love for everything and everybody. His life was cut short in June of 2015 at the age of ten due to complications of pulmonary hypertension, which is a progressive lung disease with no cure. All proceeds from the race go to the Pulmonary Hypertension Association and The Barst Grant to research pediatric pulmonary hypertension. Come fight the PHight for Jonah and don't forget to wear red! That was Jonah's favorite color!
