Past 5K/2K Events

Standing Up to POTS has created a tradition of gathering together with friends and family on Wittenberg University's beautiful campus in Springfield, Ohio for our annual 5K/2K. It is a great opportunity to meet other families living with POTS, exercise, and raise awareness about this disorder.
