Join the Team Today!
This year is our 10th anniversary year with Team PHenomenal Hope, and we are excited about the relaunch of our Let Me Be Your Lungs program.
What is Let Me Be Your Lungs? In this program, we partner athletes with people who live with pulmonary hypertension, and provide athletes a toolkit that includes racing gear and tips on how to spread the word about Team PH and pulmonary hypertension. Being paired with a patient is optional, but we get excited about building these unique teams in the race to make a difference. Our goal is to give the athlete meaning for the endurance challenge of choice, beyond their personal record goals, and bring people who live with PH out of isolation and onto this team to help us raise awareness.
In return, we ask the athlete to fundraise this year and raise a minimum of $650 over the course of the whole year. This helps support our Let Me Be Your Lungs program as well as other Team PH programs, such as the Unmet Needs Patient Impact Fund, or the PHenomenal Impact Fund for PH Research.
Our athletes participate in endurance challenges of their choice and secure their own entires. Whether you enjoy walking or jogging 5Ks on the weekend, cycling a century, competing in a triathlon, or running a marathon, there is room for you on the team.
