Made it! NYC Marathon finisher.
November 07, 2017

We had a great time running through the boisterous crowds in the drizzling rain at the NYC Marathon on Sunday. Didn't hit our goal times, but  See more
Van Grotenhuis

THE STORY:

I chose to run for MRF  because migraines affect my wife Kathy, brother Kurt, and Mom.   I have seen in person the affect migraines have when they hit without warning and totally ruin your day.   So far none of our kids have them, but if they do, maybe research supported by MRF will make a difference in their lives.....and the lives of many others. 

I was truly amazed at how many people worldwide are affected by migraines---38 million in US and 1 billion worldwide.   The 3rd most prevalent illness in the world.

Info from MRF: 

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 boroughs, across 5 bridges, and ends in beautiful Central Park.  This world-famous race covers 26.2 miles of city streets.   Please help support MRF's inspiring runners and help the 38 million American migraine sufferers by donating now.
