Pulmonary Hypertension Unit

They went to Hell and Back!

And now we have the documentary evidence! Our eight brave volunteers did indeed go To Hell and Back last saturday June 15th. Taking on the 10K challenge at Kilruddy Estate in Wicklow on our behalf were Niamh Prendeville, Ron Doyle, Ciara McDonnell, Elaine McDonnell, Stephen Fogarthy, Conor McIntyre, Courtney Flynn and Kate Faughnan and (being biased) we think they stood out among the participants in their Get Breathless for PH t-shirts – well at least until the mud, sweat and tears took over. We salute their tenacity and dedication to the cause and offer our heartfelt thanks that they did indeed Get Breathless for Pulmonary Hypertension.

We think you’ll agree the pictures display the  evidence of their commitment to fundraising and raising awareness of Pulmonary Hypertension.
