Take the Stairs

Life in Purple Challenge


Walk in the shoes of someone with PH by challenging yourself to take the stairs instead of the elevator for a set length of time (e.g. one week, one month, etc.).

Walking up a flight of stairs or even a short distance can be difficult for people who have PH. PH can cause someone to feel tired, out-of-breath, or dizzy with exercise, significantly limiting their options for staying active.

Take-the-Challenge Bonus

Taking this Life in Purple Challenge is an easy way to get in shape! It might be difficult at first, but after a while, this challenge might not feel so challenging anymore!
