Miles for Migraine Cincinnati 2019
The second annual Miles for Migraine run/walk/relax event concluded on June 8, 2019. It was a huge success, doubling in participants from last year. Cincinnati raised $4,463.70.
The day began a bit cloudy but the rain mostly held off while the participants and volunteers made it shine! Awards were granted to:
- Largest Team: My Migraine Life (17)
- Spirit Award: Scarlet Marshall
- Largest Fundraiser: Jessica Johnson Jones $804
Prior to the race, introductions and speeches were given by Katie MacDonald from Miles for Migraine. Provider perspectives were given by Vince Martin (UCHealth) and Emily Riddle (CCHMC). A patient warrior perspective was given by Sarah Rathsack (My Migraine Life)
The walk/run/relax race began after the national anthem. The path was flat and everyone went at their own pace. Some raced to the front while others enjoyed a stroll and some enjoyed quiet time back at the tents coloring.
Congrats to the top finishers:
It was an amazing day of spirit, strength and support. Continue to follow along as Miles for Migraine continues to improve the world of migraine across the U.S. #MilesforMigraine
