This Week's Beet



April 11 - April 17

This week in Monrovia!



Monrovia Knights of Columbus Lenten Fish Dinner






Pulmonary Hypertension (PH) is a very rare, under-diagnosed and often misdiagnosed disease.  The disease caused high blood pressure in the pulmonary arteries.  This makes it harder for the blood to flow through the lungs to pick up oxygen.

Pulmonary Hypertension Association (PHA) has launched the RACE OF OUR LIVES campaign to rally the PH community members behind Team PHenomenal Hop, creating opportunities for patients, families and medical professionals to raise funds and awareness in their own communities. 

Monrovia community member, Joannie Yuille, has PH.  She is asking the community to support her in a Unity Miles event to join the RACE OF OUR LIVES campaign, PHA and Team PHenomenal Hope in their journey.  Unity Miles events don't need to a bike ride, it is just a way of gathering together our community in support of the Race in order to raise awareness and funds for PH.  Monrovia will be placed on the Map with other communities across American gathering.  Join Joannie, family, friends and community members as they demonstrate their support in a one mile walk around Library Park in Monrovia.
