In June I did a virtual challenge to raise money for Miles for Migraine. “Miles for Migraine is a registered 501(c)(3) Non-Profit with the mission of improving the lives of migraine patients and their families, raising public awareness about headache disorders, and helping find a cure for migraine. Miles for Migraine produces fun walk/run events, typically 2 mile walk and 5k and 10k race to raise money for migraine research. We also host youth camps for kids and teens impacted by migraine or other headache disorders.”
I made the goal of raising $300 for the 3 years I’ve been blogging and I’m happy to announce we met that goal and exceeded it! Thank you to those who donated! Migraine is terribly underfunded and every dollar goes a long way towards fellowship programs for training new doctors as well as research. THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
For those of you that missed the fundraiser and would like participate yourself, I have a few more opportunities for you.
There are 3 more races this year:
San Francisco July 29
Washington, DC October 7
Philadelphia October 15
Virtual Race Anytime!
Keep moving! I have more race dates coming for Runnin’ for Research in which I participated last year. I hope you are motivated to take one step at a time and each day get a bit stronger. As a chronic migraineur, I feel like one day I step forward, the next I’m knocked back down . The most important thing is that I take that step forward again…..
