Team PHenomenal Hope is a charity nonprofit – you can learn more about us here.
We have a team of endurance athletes who commit to race and fundraise for medical research into treatments and a cure for Pulmonary Hypertension. They are scattered around the United States, Belgium, and Australia.
We match some athletes with people who have Pulmonary Hypertension. Together, they raise awareness of this rare disease and fundraise and build community. We love it. And we think you will, too!
Either way, by participating in our #LetMeBeYourLungs program, you’ll get a cool t-shirt, hopefully meet up with a really great person who happens to have Pulmonary Hypertension, and you’ll have that great feeling of doing good in the world.
Making a racer-patient match can be tricky, so it does take us a few weeks to reach out into the community of patients in your region and work to make a match. Please be patient while this process unfolds.
Once you are introduced to your patient match (usually via email), please communicate! Patients are interested and curious about people who want to help them – but they might also be shy. Please take that first step and follow up! You have no idea what a terrific thing it is you’ll be doing.
If you have questions, reach out to Team PHenomenal Hope at firstname.lastname@example.org.
