10th Annual Standing Up to POTS 5K/2K

Raised $24,932.24 for the SUTP Research Fund

In-person 5K/2K at Wittenberg University in Springfield, Ohio

Over 120 people joined together to walk and run to raise awareness about postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS), and to raise funds for POTS research. It was a cold, crisp fall day on Wittenberg's beautiful campus with the fall leaves on full display. We had a record number of POTS patients registered - 32 in the same place at the same time talking with each other! The best part of the day was watching people with POTS meet and quickly bond over shared experiences. So joyful!

Together with the virtual 5K/2K event, we raised $24,932.24 (after expenses) for the Standing Up to POTS Research Fund aimed at improving the quality of life for people living with POTS right now.

Thank you to all of our sponsors, private donors, and participants for making this event so successful!

Running total for all of our 5K/2K events: $142,610.42 for the Standing Up to POTS Research Fund!
