Runnin’ for Research: Headache Migraine Disorders

Runnin' for Research

Who’s ready for Runnin’ for Research? Here it is….that time of year where the leaves are changing, the air is getting crisper and it’s time to donate.  During the Fall, I participate in many charity walks and Runnin’ for Research is one I added last year.

Runnin’ for Research Purpose

To improve the quality of life of those who suffer with headache and migraine disorders through fundraising for quality research and the promotion of patient empowerment, community awareness, and local and national advocacy.

Migraine non Profit

Prior to its founding as a 501(c)3 organization, R4R operated as an entity of the American Headache and Migraine Association (AHMA), starting in 2014, and completed two cycles of races. In total, over $25,000 was made available to AHMA to distribute as warranted.

Contributions to R4R recruit, support, market, and manage local race events. All proceeds from these events support the missions of the organization. Examples include support of the American Migraine Foundation, the American Headache and Migraine Association, and the Alliance for Headache Disorders Advocacy.

How you can participate:

http://www.runnin4research.org/upcoming-races.html

Runnin’ for Research takes place in Kansas City, MO, Morgantown, WV, and Louisville, KY on October 8th.

Each location will offer:

5K run/1 mile walk to raise funding for headache and migraine research.

1 Mile walk non-competitive, untimed event.

Virtual Runner

“Virtual Runner” for anyone who wants to take part, support our event, but can’t actually be on site.  You can choose to run a 5K or walk a mile while the event occurs. If that is not possible, you rest at home knowing you are supporting a great cause.  Note, virtual runners do not get a race t-shirt. I participated last year and it was easy and fun.

Last year and this year I will participate as a virtual runner.  I am not a runner so I will be walking and donating to R4R on October 8th in my own location.  I encourage you to donate!  If you are unable to donate, I encourage you to go out and walk that day sending positive vibes to all those effected by Migraine and headache disorders.

If you participate that day, please #mymigrainelife and tag @mymigrainelife on facebook, instagram, and twitter to spread the social media buzz about the event.  I look forward to seeing your pictures and reading your stories!

Thank You!!!
