8th Annual Standing Up to POTS 5K/2K

October, 2021

In-Person 5K/2K

Over 80 people joined together to walk and run to raise awareness about postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS), and to raise funds for POTS research. While overcast, the weather was perfect for the event and Wittenberg's beautiful campus was on full display. 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 $22,150.07 for POTS research 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!
