A couple things to note:
What does it mean to be a Team PH athlete?
Athletes who race for Team PH have chosen to use their sport to raise awareness about pulmonary hypertension and funds to support our cause.
We ask that Team PH athletes help us spread awareness by wearing our Team PH gear in their races and training to help open a conversation, such as, “What is Team PHenomenal Hope?” or “What is pulmonary hypertension?”
We ask that Team PH athletes share information about themselves so our team and community can cheer for you at your events, and so that we can connect you with our athlete and PH patient communities. This can happen through the #LetMeBeYourLungs program, or other connections.
We also ask that Team PH athletes raise funds to help support our PHenomenal Impact Fund for Global PH Research and other patient-centered programs.
Team PH athlete requirements
We ask all athletes to commit to:
- Fundraise at least $650 to help support the mission of Team PH (research and patient programs)
- Submit some basic information and photos to us
- Wear the Team PH gear and promote PH awareness during your training and at your endurance event
What is the fundraising requirement, and how do I do this?
We ask each athlete to raise a minimum of $650 during the calendar year. Part of the sign-up process is creating your own fundraising page through GoFundMe. We can provide tools and tips to help you customize this page (customization is proven to help increase donations).
What type of endurance event can I participate in?
Each of our athletes choose their own challenge – whether it be running, cycling, swimming, triathlons, mountain climbing, or cross country skiing. Do you participate in an event that is not on this list? Let us know! We’d love to talk to you about doing it for Team PH.
Will Team PH pay my race entry fees?
No. Participants in our endurance program have the freedom to race in any endurance event of their choice, and will need to pay their own entry fees.
Where is the team based?
Although our organization is based in Beloit, Wisconsin, USA, we have team members all over the country and all around the world.
But I don’t think of myself as an endurance athlete. How can I participate?
We have a wide range of participants. Some of our athletes participate in one fun walk a year. Some of our athletes compete in IRONMAN triathlon competitions all year long. Whatever your ability level is, we have a spot for you.
