Track Team PHenomenal Hope on the Race Across America

Team PHenomenal Hope in front of the RVTeam PHenomenal Hope finished the 3,020 mile Race Across America (RAAM) in honor of the PH community in just 7 days, 7 hours, 15 minutes - a day earlier than expected!

The racers -- Ann-Marie Alderson, Dr. Patricia George, Ryanne Palermo and Stacie Truszkowski -- trained for two years. They were supported by a crew who drove alongside the racers in their RV (pictured right), where the racers rested when it wasn't their turn.

The crew posted updates, and you can follow the team's progress on their Facebook, Twitter and blog feeds below. You can also track when they hit their checkpoints on the RAAM website.
