3rd Annual Standing Up to POTS 5K/2K

September, 2016

Partnering with Wittenberg University's Pre-Health Club, Standing Up to POTS had its biggest and best 5K to date by all measures.  Almost 300 people gathered on Saturday, September 24 to get some exercise and make a strong statement of support for the POTS community.  We had 12 POTS families represented at this event who had a chance to mingle and exchange stories with others who understand the trials of living with chronic illness.  This fall we raised almost $14,000 to benefit Standing Up to POTS as we work to improve the quality of life for people with POTS. 

Thank you to all who supported us, including our corporate sponsors: Thrivent Financial, Wittenberg University, Kohl's, Merchants National Bank, Comfort Living, Kroger, Ohio Solar Electric, Kreider and Krogg DDS, and Coldwell Banker Heritage Roediger.
