We are a concerned group of medical, allied health, and laypersons who have recently formed a non-profit group, Miles for Migraine, where our mission is to:
1. Inform the public about the serious underfunding for research in the prevention, causes, treatment, and cure of headache disorders.
Only 5% of federal tax dollars for national medical research are currently allocated through the National Institutes of Health.
2. Provide website links about various headache organizations for further information.
3. Create a fun outdoor event that especially welcomes those with headache disorders who have never tried a walk/run, in addition to their family, friends, and the public.
