Mother's Day Race May 13, 2018

Join us for the 2018 Mother’s Day 10M/5K Run and 2 Mile walk. This event has been happening for several years as a benefit for the Association for Migraine Disorders and Wickford Sailing Association. This year, we are excited to have Miles for Migraine producing the event in partnership with the Association for Migraine Disorders as part of their national race series.

We hope to have a good turn out of people living with migraine and/or their family and friends.  Even if you can only come sit and watch, people with migraine and their supporters showing up to advocate for themselves sends a message that migraine deserves to a lot more attention - in terms of more research projects and research funding devoted to the disease, workplace accomodations, reducing stigma, etc.

Whether you choose to walk or run, you will find flat, professionally measured courses providing scenic waterfront views from Allen Harbor in Quonset Point. This is a USATF-Sanctioned event. The courses includes portions of a beautiful, new bike path and the rest is in a low-traffic area. 

Come celebrate Mother’s Day with family and friends in a fun-filled atmosphere with music and food. Make this Mother’s Day count for the 28 million women who suffer from migraines in the United States.

Proceeds for this event will be donated back to local migraine and headache research at the Brown Institute for Brain Science Post-Doctoral Migraine Fellowship program.  Please consider fundraising in addition to competing or walking.  There are prizes for the top 3 fundraisers.  You will find a downloadable. customizable fundraising letter on the registration page.
