To our Stepping Strong donor…
To our Stepping Strong donors,

Thank you so much for donating to the Stepping Strong Fund in support of our run in the BAA Half Marathon this past Sunday. We did it! David ran in 1:30:03 and SJ in 1:52:53. Although rainy, it was still a blast!

Thank you again for all of your support!

THANK YOU (We learned some donors did not get this note the first time so we're sending again!)

Team Hanna G and ME,

Thank you for supporting the 2016 POTS Walk. You ran, walked, donated and spoke out to raise funds and awareness for POTS and thanks to you, the Walk was a huge success. May 7th served as a beacon of hope — to patients struggling with POTS and to all the people who love them — that the movement demanding increased awareness, fundraising and research for POTS is growing. Last year the 2015 POTS Walk was the largest fundraiser ever held for POTS research. This year we set the record again! Don’t just take my word for it — the numbers speak for themselves.

For the POTS Walk as a whole: Last year, 776 people donated, 400 people participated and we raised $45,000. This year, a whopping 1212 contributed, 575 people registered and we crested $75,000 in donations. In just one year the Walk has nearly doubled.

As for Team Hanna G and ME: Last year, 145 people donated, 50 people participated and we raised $10,000 in small to medium-sized donations. This year, 220 people opened their wallets, 75 team members were present and we crested $15,000! Team Hanna G and ME was again the largest team at the Walk, in numbers and in dollars, and together we made a big impact. Thank you!

So, team, we can and should spend time basking in the success of the Walk, but then we must get back to work. There are 1-3 million Americans battling POTS every day and they need a voice. Events like this give voice to POTS patients, but that voice needs to get louder. Please continue to speak out about POTS — educate your friends and your doctors — and please continue to push for increased research — through fundraising and lobbying. I need you in this fight. Together we can and will #breakPOTS. 

With deep gratitude,
Hanna

Dear Will, From the bottom …
Dear Will,

From the bottom of my heart, thank you for your generous donation to Team Hanna G and ME. Each dollar donated has a tangible effect on POTS research.

Your donation will go to Dysautonomia International’s POTS Research Fund. Last year, Team Hanna G and ME raised over $25,000 during the 2015 POTSwalk and 5K, and we are trying to surpass that figure this year. The money raised in 2015 allowed Dysautonomia International’s POTS Research Fund to sponsor a study at Harvard’s Autonomic Lab and another study by the Mayo Clinic.

Your contribution has brought us closer to our goal and has brought hope to me and the millions of other Americans suffering with POTS.

I have been humbled by the outpouring of love I have received from friends, family and strangers as I have begun to speak out about my 8-year struggle with POTS. Please share information about POTS, the POTSwalk and our fundraising efforts with your friends and family. Together we can #breakPOTS!

Thank you so very much,
Hanna

A huge thank you again to everyone who joined me in supporting the Stepping Strong Fund, tracked me during the race, and checked in to send me words of encouragement or congratulations over the past couple of days. I was thrilled and honored to be a part of the Stepping Strong team this year, and I truly appreciate all of your support!
