Join in on New Kit Day

June 15,2017

One of the most exciting days in an athlete’s season is New Kit Day. After all the planning, hype and excitement, the box comes in the mail, and inside it lies the uniform, the new kit, the symbol that one is part of something greater than our individual selves, part of a team. Part of something where we work together, all over the country and all around the world, to do our part in this PH race.

When you wear the Team PH uniform it means you’re a part of the team, you’re in this with us, promoting PH awareness and being a living symbol of using your sport/hobby/passion to race to make a difference in the lives of others. It means you share the positive vibe, and have courage to put yourself out there, to answer questions when people ask, “What is Team PHenomenal Hope?”

The kit is a symbol of our grassroots awareness efforts, as athletes toe the starting line, or gather for a training ride, it is common to get a question “What is Team PHenomenal Hope?” And that simple question allows us to say, “We’re a team of athletes all over the US and all around the world, who use our sport to raise awareness about pulmonary hypertension, which is a chronic disease that makes people short of breath, often goes long undiagnosed, and for which we need a cure.”

This year we’re super excited to be working with Panache, our Boulder-based clothing partner, in producing our official clothing.

We’re a team of athletes all over the US and all around the world, who use our sport to raise awareness about pulmonary hypertension, which is a chronic disease that makes people short of breath, often goes long undiagnosed, and for which we need a cure.

You’ll see a new design and new symbols. So what do these mean?

On the front and back, in the center you’ll see our logo, Team PHenomenal Hope with the lightning bolt. We choose bold colors of blue and gold with purple, strong colors that resonate with the PH community.

You’ll also see prominently featured the Actelion logo, our presenting sponsor, and Bayer, our Gold level sponsor, two extremely strong corporate partners whose generosity and energy help power Team PH forward.

On the sides of the kits you’ll see our Let Me Be Your Lungs campaign and logo, in a prominent position as athletes race their bikes or run past crowds in races. Finally, on the back you’ll find the logo of the dove, our symbol to honor those we’ve lost to PH. We have all been touched by losses of friends and family members, and we continue in our race – and in our lives – in tribute to them.

So we invite you to join us in spirit and wear our kit!

You may not have the time to commit to Team PH as an athlete right now, but you definitely can wear our colors and help us spread the word about pulmonary hypertension around the world.

You’ll find the kits super comfortable, high quality, and ready for wear over some long miles.

For a limited time we will have a clothing store open at Panache (this happens just twice per year), so get your kits now – buy one for your friends! And 15% of your purchase will be donated to Team PHenomenal Hope. This sales event is set to close June 29th (Thursday), 2017.

If you buy a kit, let us know by using the #NewKitDay & #PHAthlete hashtags!

Please note the size charts! We recommend sizing one size up because these are racer-style European fit kits.

Thank you for racing with us to make a difference in the lives of PH patients.
