"Team PHenomenal Mojo"
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! #TeamPHenomenalMojo
A PH Patient's heart often beats at a marathoner's pace...
Our cause: 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 several medical treatments available, there is still no cure, and sometimes people even need to get a lung transplant. We are racing to help change all that by raising awareness about the disease and funds to find a cure. 100% of profits raised will be donated to fund pulmonary hypertension research, supporting those who dedicate their hours, days, and nights to curing this disease.
"Let me be your lungs"
By registering with Team PHenomenal Hope, you will literally be racing with members of the PH community. For those interested, we plan to partner athletes with community members so that you are literally racing not only for your own goals and personal race time, but for your friend. This journey is about much more than the 13.1 or 26.2 miles - it's about new community and new friends. #LetMeBeYourLungs
