Team Alpha-1

Join or Organize a Team Alpha-1!

Team Alpha-1 is comprised of Alphas, family and friends who volunteer to participate or assist in local, national and international sporting events. Team Alpha-1 was created to promote awareness, detection and encourage participation of Alphas across the country to raise funds in support of Alpha-1 research and programs.

It just takes your commitment and dedication, and in most cases, joining forces with other Alphas in your community.

The Alpha-1 Foundation’s Team Alpha-1 participates at American Lung Association (ALA) Bike Treks, American Liver Foundation (ALF) Walks and similar community, national and international sporting events.

Join our team and help raise funds for Alpha-1 research and programs

In addition to its mission of awareness, many Team Alpha-1 participants raise funds above their entry pledge for Alpha-1 research, primarily by conducting letter writing campaigns to their friends and contacts soliciting support of their participation.
