The Race… RAAM 2014
On June 14, 2014 our Race Across America began. We set off from Oceanside, California and made it to Annapolis, Maryland, 17 people working together with the goal of making a safe crossing across the USA in 7 days, 7 hours, and 15 minutes. With a dedicated and focused team of crew and racers, as well as with the unparalleled support of the PH community, family, friends and sponsors, we overcame obstacles, stayed true to our mission, and crossed the finish line on the dock.
The Race… Towards a cure
Yet our journey does not end here. The race towards a cure for pulmonary hypertension continues, and we ask you to help us spread the word about pulmonary hypertension and support us in helping researchers find a cure. Please read more from Greta’s Blog Post here.
We have exciting news coming this November about 2015. We hope you will continue with us on this adventure.
