Join Team PH in the 2018 Pittsburgh Marathon
Join Team PHenomenal Hope this year at the Pittsburgh Marathon Weekend of events!
Each May, runners from all over the country lace up their sneakers to run the Pittsburgh Marathon/ Half Marathon/ Relay/ 5K. Those who chose to be charity runners can use their passion for endurance sports to increase awareness of pulmonary hypertension and raise funds to help researchers find a cure.
Running is the perfect way for us to make a difference! Why? Because simple tasks such as walking up the stairs can make a person with pulmonary hypertension see their a heart beat increase as fast our runners’ hearts beat during their distance training and racing.
Through the “Let Me Be Your Lungs” program (#LetMeBeYourLungs) athletes are paired with a patient to run for and share their journey with.
So how can you help? Well, that part is easy!
Share our mission and event with the runners in your life. Invite them to come out to Team PHenomenal Hope’s next event to learn more about how to get involved either by volunteering or signing up for an event. Together we can put one foot in front of the other towards a cure!
