Walk for Migraine Cincinnati 2019

Team My Migraine Life traveled to Cincinnati on June 8, 2019.  This is an extra special city for us.  It’s a place of love, family, and friendship.  Being that June is Migraine and Headache Awareness Month, I am thrilled to be raising extra money and awareness during this time both in-person and online. All donations from this event will benefit the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital and UC Health to support their headache fellowship program & local research.

This year, I went walking for migraine awareness month. We raised money for Miles for Migraine in Cincinnati. It was an amazing day!

Last year, I arrived in Cincinnati and almost canceled the night before due to an intense migraine.   But I made it! This year, I arrived and woke up feeling as good as could be expected.  We arrived and Team My Migraine Life did not disappoint!

In fact, we were honored with the largest team award!

Team My Migraine Life raised $366.66

Miles for Migraine Cincinnati total $4,464

In the end, the total doubled from last year with close to 300 participants. What a success!

Prior to the walk, I was honored to give my patient a perspective on life with migraine.  People thanked me for sharing my story. I am inspired by their feedback.  As an advocate, I never know how many people I touch with my story. Their simple “thank you” fuels me to continue in my efforts.

Some walked, some ran and we all worked up a sweat. The day ends with hugs and hearts full of love!  It was a day of awareness, community, fun, funds, and love.  Thank you to all that donated and supported.  Every step I take is for the millions who migraine touches.  For all of you who are in a dark room, an ER, or affected by migraine, we continue to walk and fight for a change.

    Saturday ended up turning out so nice! Even walking in the sprinkles made me thankful for being able to walk this year! I was just in bed the night before and worried I wouldn’t make the walk!

    Your personal story brought tears running down my face as I know how it “was” to be an educator and lose my job. Migraine is hard…I’m fortunate to have people like you advocating for me, other patients, caregivers and our researchers!

    Thanks for sharing your story!
