Pulmonary Hypertension Association presents the Color Phor A Cure 5k in Jennings. This event will take place on October 12, beginning at 9 a.m.
Color PHor A Cure was founded by Josh & Lindsey Belt of Jennings, Louisiana. In January of 2013, their youngest son Joel Belt (3 years old) was diagnosed with severe primary pulmonary hypertension (PPH). Doctors have given him only 6 months to a year left to live. This disease is so rare, there are only 500 new cases a year compared to cancer which impacts 1.8 million a year. 100% of all the proceeds from the race will go to help raise awareness and research funds for PHA's Dr. Robyn J. Barst Pediatric Research Fund for Pulmonary Hypertension. This is the only pediatric PH research fund in all of the United States.
