About This Activity

Join us for a day of awareness, empowerment, and hope for the pulmonary hypertension community on the beautiful Vanderbilt University Wellness & Recreation Center campus in Nashville, Tennessee. 

All participants receive a free gift bag and t-shirt as they begin their journey through health education, a 5K, and 6 minute walk.

Education sessions planned include blood pressure checks, cardiology genetic counseling, vision screenings, dental screenings, cardio pulmonary resuscitation training, nutrition screenings, BMI testing, auditory screening, Face painting for children and a literacy cafe where volunteers will read books to the children onsite. 

100% of proceeds will be designated to PH education. Your financial support gives us the greatest flexibility to plan a dynamic experience for the participants.
