Become a phaware organisation
Engage for a Cure
The simplest and fastest way you can help is to become phaware. PHNA offer's A3 sized gloss colour posters for you to display in your business, office, school, surgery, hospitals, anywhere that the public will see it (right, currently being updated).
We provide you with a booklet on Understanding Pulmonary Hypertension and some of our pamphlets so that you can share and educate with others promoting the understanding of this serious disease, helping us to focus on the higher risk groups in the community. We are also introducing a new fundraising kit so stay tuned for more!
Join in the Pulmonary Hypertension Straw Test Challenge and Get Breathless for PH!
The straw test challenge has proven to be very successful as an educational tool when addressing groups of people both small and large during educational talks and presentations. Used both in the USA and here in Australia to give the average person a small understanding of what its like to breathe like a PH patient.
This fabulous graphic designed by Steve Van Wormer Founder of www.phaware.global features his son Lucas demonstrating the straw test and we have included it in our "Get Breathless for PH" straw test challenge banner stand when doing community events.
We get people to sit down and chose from a range of coloured straws and time them with a stop watch while they participate. We have a stand up banner of this graphic to guide them (left).
Its a great one to try in a school setting or at a luncheon so give it a try and maybe like the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge we could get this to catch on all over the world to raise awareness.
Contact PHNA if you would like your organisation to participate in this worthy challenge for PH Awareness, everyone who participates gets a sticker too.
This project has been proudly sponsored by "The Pledge" Initiative by Matrix Contracting & The Indian Ocean Hotel Social Club. Proudly supported by a Grant from Connect Groups WA and John Septimus Roe Community College.
Stickers are given to participants to wear showing their involvement in the
