Run, Walk or Roll with us for POTS Research!
Join us for a fun event and help us raise awareness and funds for postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS), a form of dysautonomia. New date will be announced. Each year we bring together family, friends and loved ones to help support the dysautonomia community. Whether you wish to run, walk, or roll your way through the 5K or 1 mile course, or just come and show your support, we hope you will join us. Race will take place along the scenic Mystic River in Medford, MA. Race will begin at 11am and packet pickup will open at 9am. There will be great live music, fun raffle giveaways, a Wellness Fair and so much more!
Help us reach our goal this year of $80,000. All funds will benefit Dysautonomia International, an organization devoted to funding POTS research. Proceeds will benefit the POTS Research Fund. You can register as an individual, form a team, or join another team. If you are unable to attend in person, you can donate to support the event.
