BENEFITING: Migraine Research Foundation Inc.
ORGANIZER: Migraine Research Foundation Inc.
After reading through a couple different organizations associated with the NYC Marathon, I found the Migraine Research Foundation which hit close to home. My mom, Lisa Babula has suffered from migraines for most of her life. The migraines have gotten to the point of debilitating as she spends most days on the couch or (if it's bad enough) in her bed. Migraines have conusmed countless days, weeks, special anniversaries or birthdays. It has limited the foods that she can eat, jobs that she wants to take and things that she wants to do, as they all trigger migraines. With medicine prices outrageously high, our family can't always afford the medication she needs so she suffers through her day.
Migraine is not just a bad headache. It’s a complex and incapacitating neurological disease – the 6th most disabling and the 3rd most prevalent in the world. Astonishingly, we still don’t understand what causes migraine.
MRF raises money to fund research into the causes, better treatments, and a cure for migraine. Our Board covers our costs, so 100% of every donation goes directly to fund migraine research.
The TCS New York City Marathon takes runners through all 5 NYC boros, across 5 bridges, and ends in beautiful Central Park. This world-famous race covers 26.2 miles of city streets.
Support all of MRF's inspiring runners and help the 38 million American migraine sufferers by donating now.
Thanks so much for the support!
