THE STORY:

Migraine Research Foundation Inc. wrote -

Running in the ING New York City Marathon? Want to see a world without Migraine? Run for the Migraine Research Foundation, the only nonprofit dedicating to investing in innovative research to unravel the mysteries, discover better treatments, and find a cure!

Even if you're not running, be inspired by the runners who participate in this world-class event, and please take this fun opportunity to support this critical cause!

Although 36 million Americans suffer the debilitating pain, migraine is still misunderstood, under-diagnosed and under-funded. Sufferers wage a constant battle with family, friends, and colleagues that don't take the crippling symptoms seriously. 14 million face chronic pain (15 or more days a month) and face a life of disability. 10% of school-age children battle migraine, even infants. Women suffer at a rate three times greater than men. Every 10 seconds, someone goes to the emergency room with a headache or migraine. U.S. employers lose more than $13 billion a year from 113 million lost work days due to migraine.

Despite its major impact on society, businesses, and families, migraine research is severely underfunded. Many doctors are still under-informed or unsympathetic, and very few are specialists in the field.

Effective treatments, prevention, and a cure will only come from research into migraine's causes. MRF exists solely to move migraine science forward and put an end to the debilitating pain.

MRF is the only nonprofit whose sole purpose is to end the debilitating pain of migraine by raising funds for innovative research to further the understanding of the causes and mechanisms of migraine, to develop improved treatments for sufferers, and to find the cure.Our operating costs are completely underwritten, so ALL DONATIONS GO DIRECTLY TO FUND MIGRAINE RESEARCH.
