Walk or Run for Migraine and Headache Research - In Person or Virtually

R4R-logo-250On Saturday, October 8, three Runnin' for Research runs/walks to raise funding for Migraine and Headache research will occur in:

  • Jeffersontown, Kentucky (outside Louisville);
  • Morgantown, West Virginia, and
  • Parkville, Missouri (outside Kansas City).

In each location, there will be a 5-K run and a 1-mile walk. For those who can't be present or who are physically unable to participate, there's a "virtual runner" option to support the events.

Registration for these events is kept to an affordable $20 fee. National and local sponsors have provided financial support that offsets an race expenses not covered by registration fees and adds to the "kitty" for research donations. The directors of these three events are volunteers, and they've worked diligently to organize and run fun, high quality events at minimum cost.

This is the third year for Runnin' for Research events. In 2015, Runnin' for Research donated $6,313 to the American Migraine Foundation from just one race in Morgantown. In 2016, the Louisville area race was added, and $17,434 was donated. With the addition of the Kansas City area race this year, it's anticipated that the donation will grow significantly.

These events are coming up fast! For more information on these three events, or to register, please visit the upcoming races page on the Runnin' for Research site.

Live well,
