On Sunday, April 21st, 2018 I am lacing up my sneakers and participating in the first annual Miles for Migraine Walk/Run Cleveland, OH. This event benefits a cause that effects so many and has a mission that is particularly close to my heart and my family.
Miles for Migraine is a non-profit organization whose mission is to improve the lives of people impacted by migraine, and their families through social awareness, community and supporting research efforts for a cure. Migraine is not “just a headache”. Migraine is the second leading cause of “Years lived with Disability”. In the United States, more than 37 million people have migraine. Everyone either knows someone who has migraine or struggles with migraine themselves.
This year I’m so excited to announce that Miles for Migraine is coming to Cleveland! In the past, I have raised money and participated virtually. Here’s how we did last year. This year my goal is $400 in honor of beginning my 4th year writing My Migraine Life (In June) and taking steps toward a better Migraine Life for myself and millions of others. This is Cleveland’s inaugural race! I’m so excited to be there in person and walk my miles along side so many migraine supporters.
Please consider joining the My Migraine Life team or donating and participating virtually. Getting to my goal will bring us all closer to an improved Migraine Life.
