Team PHenomenal Hope
Team PHenomenal Hope and Mojo Running and Multisport are teaming up to bring some PHenomenal MOJO to the Pittsburgh marathon, and we want to race with YOU!
A PH Patient's heart often beats at a marathoner's pace...
We are racing for people who live with a disease called pulmonary hypertension.
This is a disease of high pressures in the arteries in the lungs that makes people short of breath, lightheaded, and can make doing the simplest tasks like walking up stairs, playing outside, going for a hike, or carrying groceries into the house exhausting tasks.
Although there are 14 FDA-approved treatments available, there is no known cure; for some, a lung transplant is the only hope.
We are racing to help change all that by raising awareness about the disease and to raise funds for new treatments and a cure.
100% of profits raised will be donated to fund pulmonary hypertension medical research, supporting those who dedicate their hours, days, and nights to curing this disease.
By registering with Team PHenomenal Hope, you will be racing with members of the PH community - we plan to partner athletes with community members so that you are racing not only for your own goals and personal race time, but for your PH match.
This journey is about much more than the 13.1 or 26.2 miles - it's about new community and new friends. #LetMeBeYourLungs
