About MILES FOR MIGRAINE

Location:

4114 HAIN DR, LAFAYETTE HL, PA 19444, US

Mission Statement

Miles for Migraine is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with the mission of improving the lives of migraine patients and their families, raising public awareness about headache disorders, and helping find a cure for migraine. Miles for Migraine produces fun walk/run events, typically a 2-mile walk and 5K and 10K races to raise money for migraine research. We also host youth camps for kids and teens impacted by migraine or other headache disorders.

Description

In addition to pain, sickness, and - for many - daily disability, migraine carries a severe burden of discrimination and negativity from many members of the community.

This is social stigma.

History demonstrates that diseases that are stigmatized, like HIV, and breast cancer, can only change in the public’s mind when the patients and their families come together in community action asking for recognition. Diseases in which the patients do not stand up for themselves remain badly stigmatized, and patients do not receive the research or therapies needed to effectively treat their condition. This is true even if doctors speak up for the disease; patients and their families must take over the effort.

Migraine is a major disease that receives about a 20th of the research dollars that should be given to it based upon its impact. Migraine patients desperately need new research to discover new treatments, and headache researchers and clinical specialists need to be trained. Miles for Migraine does all of these things; it does so by bringing patients together in the community while also participating in an activity that is good for your health!
