      StandingUp to POTS 5k/2k

      We hope that you will join us for the 7th Annual Standing Up to POTS 5K on Saturday, October 24, 2020.  This is a wonderful way for POTS families to get together and share stories as we raise money for POTS research!  Since 2017, we have awarded $80,150 in research funds to POTS research teams in the United States, Canada, Germany, and Sweden.  We hope to raise $15,000 in our event this year - enough to fund singificant POTS research!  Much of our fundraising for these grants happens at this annual event right here in Springfield, Ohio.  We hope that you will come out to join us in person, donate through this page, or become a sponsor for this event. There are no paychecks at Standing Up to POTS, so 100% of the money raised will go into the Standing Up to POTS Research Fund.Race Details:
