Event Description

Saturday, October 5, 8:30 a.m.

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.
