Mount Ayr Community Jr./Sr. High Bulletin for Friday, January 25, 2013...

Purple Out Tonight the athletic department is asking everyone to wear PURPLE in order to support our PH Awareness event. Pulmonary Hypertension (high blood pressure in the lungs) drains energy from those who are afflicted, and if left untreated can result in the failure of the right side of the heart. It is a rare disease, affecting just 15-50 out of a million people. However, in our community there are 4 known cases of PH - Amy Ford, Sarah McAlexander, Diane Peters, and our very own Tessa Kniep. The wrestling and basketball teams are proud to wear purple warmups to help raise awareness of Pulmonary Hypertension. Please wear purple to show your support of those who fight against this debilitating disease.
