The Race for the Finish Line in International PH Awareness Month!

It’s November, International PH Awareness month, and people all over the world are doing their best to help us towards this global goal of setting a new Guinness World Record TM for the largest collection of blue lip prints.  With only a few weeks to go, we are increasingly confident that if everyone continues with their current energy and inspiration, we’ll be able to finish the second year of the PuckerUp4PH initiative with some VERY exciting news!

We’ve had word back that the Puerto Ricans and the Aussies have started to gather up all their kisses ready to send back to us, whilst the New Zealanders and the Italians have kisses winging their way towards us  to join the first parcels already received from Germany and the USA – and we know there are many more to come!

Let me start this week’s round up of Blue Lips activity with a huge CONGRATULATIONS to Linda Smith, mother of PHA-UK’s Jenny Leafe, who last Sunday ran the 7mile Shepshed 7 race in a fabulous time.  Linda far exceeded her fundraising goal for the PHA-UK and also prompted a lot of curiosity about PH and the initiative by completing the run wearing blue lips and a PuckerUp4PH t-shirt.  Thanks so much Linda!

Over in Spain, PHA-UK’s Jane Taylor is at it again.  This time collecting 60 blue kisses in under an hour! She has several more plans in Spain before she winds up her personal contribution to the record attempt including a booth at the local Christmas Fayre on the 20th of this month.

Also in Spain, the Fundación Contra la Hipertensión Pulmonar (FCHP) have been continuuing their PuckerUp4PH partnership with the Fuenalabrada Basketball team at another home game – this one attended by Fuenli who is the mascot of the children of the town of Fuenlabrada.

South Africa have joined the campaign also in the last few weeks and we really look forward to hearing more news about their first event!
