SteadyMed Therapeutics CEO Set to Compete in Honor of Race of Our Lives

On April 13, Jonathan Rigby, CEO of SteadyMed Therapeutics, will compete in the Ironman 70.3 in New Orleans in support of Team PHenomenal Hope and the Race of Our Lives campaign. How awesome is that?

Not only does Jonathan represent a company that works to better PH patients' lives, but he also empathizes with PH patients on another level. Jonathan is a type-1 diabetic who wears an insulin pump round-the-clock, just as many PH patients wear medication pumps.

The IronMan 70.3 is a long-distance triathlon race where athletes swim, bike and run a total of 70.3 miles. Jonathan’s New Orleans race will take him through Southshore Harbor, the Bayou Sauvage National Wildlife Refuge and City Park’s Botanical Gardens – finishing up at Louis Armstrong Park. That is intense!

Jonathan has set up a virtual fundraising page to ask supporters to sponsor him as he tackles the IronMan 70.3. Donations to Jonathan’s page will support PH research and patient programs.
