The Standing Up to POTS 5K walk/run was coordinated by the HEART and Pre-Health Clubs at Wittenberg University in Springfield, Ohio. On May 2, 2015, approximately 100 people joined together to raise money for POTS research and awareness about POTS. We were thrilled that six people with POTS were present, with a variety of physical abilities. It was a great opportunity to bond together and share our mutual struggle. It was an inspiring day!
More than $4200 were raised that will be spent raising awareness in the medical community and for POTS research. We hope to continue to look for opportunities to raise awareness as we financially launch this organization.
