Our 3rd Walking PHor a Cure will be June 7th again at Beveridge Shelter at the Allegheny County Parks and will be a major "kick-off" for TPH and their RACE ACROSS AMERICA!!!!

Team PHenomenal Hope, a team of avid cyclists and enthusiasts from Pittsburgh and UPMC, has partnered with the Pulmonary Hypertension Association (PHA), to conquer a tremendous challenge - RACE ACROSS AMERICA

April 12th is also PHenonemal Mile Day

In June of 2014, Team PHenomenal Hope will be cycling more than 3,000 miles across America to honor PH patients and to raise critical funds for research and awareness of PH. Will you walk one mile to support them?


Let’s help them raise those funds for research and awareness – Let’s all work together to find a cure for this Dastardly Disease.
