Miles for Migraine Virtual Walk 2017

miles for migraine 2017 swag

This year, I started a Miles for Migraine virtual walk virtual team.

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. Additionally, Miles for Migraine produces fun run events, typically 5k and 10k races to raise money for migraine research, and also hosts youth camps for kids and teens impacted by Migraine or other headache disorders.”

Miles for Migraine Virtual Walk 2017

I love this race because we all can participate virtually. My goal is to raise $300 in honor of my blog being 3 years old this summer! Please go to my pledge page and donate if you are able. All of your donations may be tax deductible as a charitable contribution.

The fundraiser will go through June in honor of Migraine Awareness Month. If you’d like to make a mile goal, please take a picture of yourself making those miles for My Migraine Life, and I will happily post it and give encouragement, as always. Tag me on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook

The significant part is no race day, no big commitment, just motivation. If you don’t have the money to donate, please participate by walking a mile or moving one day and tag me in your success.

I want to thank all of you in advance for your donation and participation. The smallest amount makes the most significant difference. THANK YOU!

Miles for Migraine Virtual Results 2017

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. Every dollar goes a long way towards fellowship programs and 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.

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 with each day get a bit stronger.  As someone living with chronic migraine, 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…..
