Racing to make a difference in the fight against pulmonary hypertension
Team PHenomenal Hope started in 2012 as a cycling team. Today they have an international presence with over 200 athletes racing from around the world.
As a charity, they seek to raise awareness of a rare medical condition known as Pulmonary Hypertension, to fund medical research into improved treatments or a cure for those who suffer from it, and to implement programming that focuses on providing patient services, including removing patients from isolation, building community, and providing hope.
What We Did
Give WP Integration
With Team PH we helped wrangle a ton of information about the members of the racing team, the events they are competing in, and the money they are raising.
When Team PH came to us they wanted to unify information across a wide range of content types.
Team PH participates in a large amount of racing events around the world. We used the Events Calendar by Modern Tribe for the events, but we needed to incorporate more information than what is provided by the plugin.
In the past Team PH would just list the athletes participating in each event. To create a richer ecperience we created a system of check boxes on the event edit screen to add athletes. We then customized the event template to include 'Athlete Cards' on the events.
For the athlete profiles we created a custom taxonomy for the athlete's sport(s), which is represented with icons. You are also able to link patient profiles to athletes with a simple check of a box in the admin edit screen.
We also made it easy to link a donation form from the Give WP plugin. The profile also uses data from the donation form to show how much money the athlete has raised. Way to go Peter!
