Showers of Support for POTS
At Red Lily Foundation 5K Run To Stand !
Living with Dysautonomia, or POTS, teaches you to manage the unexpected. Things change, day-to-day, sometimes minute-to-minute. When our daughter was first diagnosed with Dysautonomia, one of the physicians we met said it is an unpredictable condition. He told us to approach each day expecting the unexpected…a little ominous but I suppose that is one of the benefits of living with a condition like this, it takes a lot to throw you! And so, when the rain and wind greeted us on the day of the 5k Run-To-Stand Fundraiser, we all took it in stride! It was not the weather we’d hoped for but we had a really GREAT event!
Everyone was a bit wet. Thanks to Roxbury Township and the wonderful people at Horseshoe Lake we had a great indoor facility to keep us warm, a place to dry off, and the perfect setting to meet and be entertained. We had delicious treats generously donated from local shops; cupcakes from Sweet Spot Bake Shoppe of Chester, wraps from Burrini’s Market in Randolph, and a variety of bagels from Chester Bagel; all topped off with a room full of wonderful people who came to support the cause.
Despite the rain and wind, runners ran and walkers walked! Rain, puddles, and all! The first place runner had a very impressive time of 17.11.8! Imagine what his time would have been if the weather had been in his favor! A complete list of running stats can be viewed on line at www.racingnj.com.
Red Lily Foundation’s Run-To-Stand Event brought in over $19,000 which will make a substantial impact on our mission to improve physician education and thereby expedite proper diagnosis and treatment for POTS/Dysautonomia. Because of your support and generosity, Red Lily Foundation will sponsor a symposium this Fall for physicians in the field of Dysautonomia.
