PuckerUp4PH 2010 is go!!! and we have already acheived just under a 40th of the the lip prints we need to set a new Guinness World Record TM thanks to Alex McGrath’s family and supporters in Brisbane, Australia (G’day to you all and thank you so much for everythig you are doing).  In fact PHA Australia that McGrath’s belong too,  have and continue to be fantastic supporters of the Blue Lip campaign. There may be great rivalry when it comes to sport between the UK & Oz, but when it comes to PH we stand shoulder to shoulder. Your efforts and endeavours to eradicate PH ignorance in your own part of the World is inspiring and we know many people around the world share your enthusiasm, so lets make lack of awareness of PH history!!

Here in the UK, we slipped the campaign into the water on the 15th of May at the ‘Just Walk’ event and what a talking point we created with a team of walkers in Blue lips and our new campaign t-shirts featuring the winner of our ‘Lips of 2010 contest Luz Batista Santiago from Puerto Rico, drew a lot of attention (and helped gather lip prints!!)…so we are hopeful with everyones help we are on to good thing…we’ll bring you photo’s, press coverage, video and radio coverage throughout the coming months.If you are planning an event to get people to PuckerUp4PH remember to take photos and let us have a copy. You can keep in touch with us via lips@puckerup4ph.co.

We are counting down the days until the start of the PH Awareness campaign and Guinness World Record (TM) attempt. Final tweaks are taking place with all the information materials and people across the world are in a heightened state of readyness to get their fellow countrymen and women to PuckerUp4PH, be part of our record breaking activities and learn more about pulmonary hypertension.
