When & Where
Miles for Migraine
Miles for Migraine is a registered 501c3 nonprofit whose mission is to help improve the lives of migraine patients and their families, and to help ultimately find a cure. We want to raise some big noise that migraine is more than "just a headache" and are using our Race Series as our staring point. We hope you will join us.
One in five women in the U.S. suffer from migraine. Migraine is not "just a headache" but a serious neurological disease, which the WHO ranks among the top 20 causes in the world of years of healthy life lost to disability. With acute attacks ranging from mild to severely debilitating, migraine can, over time, become progressive in both frequency and severity and has the potential to become a chronic condition with significant disability. Indeed, in a 2004 report the WHO classified severe migraine in the highest category of disability along with quadriplegia or terminal stage cancer. However, whatever the level of severity there is no doubt that migraine profoundly impacts a sufferer’s life, self-esteem, family and livelihood.
