Miles for Migraine will host its seventh annual 2-mile Walk, 5K/10K Run in Philadelphia at Valley Green/Fairmount Park along Forbidden Drive.
This Fundraiser for Migraine & Headache Awareness, Treatment & Research takes place Saturday October 5, 2019, starting at 8:30 a.m.
All donations from this event will benefit the Jefferson Headache Center to support the headache fellowship program & research.
Not just for walkers and runners – everyone is welcome, even those not up for exercise. Consider signing up as an Advocate or a Volunteer instead. Advocates come to the event at no charge. The event is an opportunity to meet others who are dealing with migraine, visit sponsor booths and take part in other activities. Volunteers receive a free shirt. Kids and adults will all learn new information about migraine in a fun scavenger hunt. Everyone receives prizes.
Nearly 1 in 4 U.S. households includes someone with migraine, yet migraine is overlooked (and undertreated: there are only 500 certified headache specialists for 39 million sufferers). In addition to the debilitating pain, migraine also carries severe burden of discrimination, negatively impacting communities around the country.
Miles for Migraine, a nonprofit organization, has set out to change this stigma by raising public awareness and money for migraine research from the ground up. Visit https://www.milesformigraine.org/ for more information.

Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
