Miles for Migraine & Runnin’ for Research Virtual Walk/Run 

 

Saturday October 7, 2017 will be a momentous occasion. Miles for Migraine and Runnin’ for Research have teamed up to bring you the chance to join them LIVE from your hometown. Our organizations will be hosting walk / run events on the same day in Philadelphia, Denver and Morgantown, WV.

If you cannot join us live, then the idea is for you to join us virtually at the same time in your city, and post yourself doing your own event on your Facebook page, or take pics and email to us at: volunteer@milesformigraine.org so we can share for you. 
 
We will be broadcasting the Philadelphia event beginning at 7:45 on the Miles for Migraine Facebook page, and Runnin’ for Research will broadcast their Morgantown event on their Facebook page. Imagine where this could go if we could get people in every state to walk/run/cheer all at the same time? Together, we will not only have a huge impact on migraine perception, but we could also perform a patient participatory event which has never occurred in the history of headache disease advocacy. 
 
Miles for Migraine and Runnin’ for Research will pool the proceeds and 100% of the donations will go to headache disease research to help find a cure.  Any donations collected by members of Clusterbusters will be donated back to that organization directly. 

A virtual walk/race is one that can be done at any location. You can walk, use the treadmill, run outside or participate in another race in your town. You can walk/run at your pace wherever you like.
