Through Teamwork we are Making a Difference

September 26,2019

Through teamwork we are making a difference in the PH community and in the lives of those who have PH. Team PH athletes, Let Me Be Your Lungs participants, Unmet Needs Fund recipients, donors, sponsors, staff, volunteers, and our board of directors have come together through teamwork to make an impact on the PH community. Thus far in 2019 that impact includes:

  • We granted our very first research award of $50,000 from our PHenomenal Impact Fund for Global PH Research. We were pleased to have received 36 high quality submissions from leading PH centers in the U.S., South Africa, and Brazil.
  • Our Unmet Needs Patient Impact Fund has granted $34,000 to help 68 PH patients this year with non-medication immediate needs.
  • We presented our first scientific poster at the American Thoracic Society International Conference describing our Unmet Needs Patient Impact Fund and the needs in the PH community.
  • 130 patient impact stories have been shared on our website to bring awareness to PH and create community among patients.
  • More than 1,000 hours of patient and caregiver volunteering was contributed.
  • The PHenomenal Hope 5K had a record-setting year, grossing $40,000 and drawing more than 700 attendees.
  • So far, our endurance team has raced more than 12,000 miles to build awareness and community around PH.
  • We launched a World PH Day challenge with Actelion Pharmaceuticals that united industry leaders in the race to improve the lives of PH patients.
  • Our unique platform has brought together globally 400 athletes and 1,200 event participants to build awareness, community and funds to support the mission and work of Team PHenomenal Hope.
  • Our work in 2019 is still on-going and the need is still great. We are continuing our exciting growth every year and we believe our impact shows. This is all thanks to our supporters, and we need your help to continue this impact and to launch new initiatives.
