Race of our lives

Meet the Team | Donate

Team PHenomenal Hope, an all-women cycling team featuring a PH-treating physician, will compete in a high-endurance cycling event, Race Across America (RAAM) in June 2014. The team will be racing to raise awareness of PH and funds to support the Pulmonary Hypertension Association and research to find a cure.

The RAAM course will put the team through an intense, non-stop physical challenge across 9 days; 3,000 miles; and 170,000 vertical feet of elevation. This physical challenge mirrors the life experiences of PH patients and families as they cope with the impact of PH in their lives.

PHA has launched the Race of Our Lives campaign to rally PH community members behind Team PHenomenal Hope, creating opportunities for patients, families and medical professionals to raise funds and awareness in their own communities. Race of Our Lives allows everyone touched by PH to be part of this coast-to-coast trek symbolic of the PH journey.

Join the Race of Our Lives and learn how you can support PHA and Team PHenomenal Hope!
