2nd Annual Standing Up to POTS 5K/2K

April, 2016

Standing up to POTS was thrilled to be the beneficiary of a 5K Walk/Run that was coordinated by the Pre-Health Club of Wittenberg University.  Nearly 100 people joined together on a snowy, blustery Saturday morning on April 9, 2016.  While the weather was cold, our hearts were warm.  Families living with POTS joined together for the event and to meet others who understand life with chronic illness.  Some ran, others walked, and a few rolled their way toward the finish line in their wheelchairs.  We raised over $12,000 at the event. 

Thanks to all who supported us, including our corporate sponsors: Wittenberg University, Thrivent Financial, Comfort Living, Dr. Keith Boor MD, Dr. Gary Thomas DDS, Meijer, Dhingra Orthodontics, Law Office of John M. Spencer, Springfield Fire and Rescue, Wells Fargo Home Mortgage, Kreider and Krogg, DDS, and State Farm - Larry Hines.
