About Migraine Community GroupsFor Patients, By Patients
Produced and developed by a team of people with chronic migraine and cluster headache, these educational support groups are designed to empower and connect you in your area. We know firsthand what it is like to experience migraine alone, without anyone who truly understands how it can derail your identity, relationships and ability to work.

Miles for Migraine
Miles for Migraine is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with the mission of improving the lives of people with migraine and other headache disorders, and their families, by raising public awareness about this disease, and helping to find a cure. Miles for Migraine produces fun walk/run events, typically a 2-mile walk and 5K and 10K races to raise money for migraine research. We also host adult education days, and a youth program for kids and teens impacted by migraine and other headache disorders.
Migraine World Summit
Migraine World Summit is the largest international migraine patient conference of its kind. Each year, we interview over 30 of the world’s top headache experts for in-depth interviews which air free and online, which become part of the largest video library of migraine and headache education. The videos, audio and transcripts, as well as several exclusive patient resources, are available on-demand year-round to people in over 191 countries. Our mission is to reduce the global burden of migraine by providing free world-class education and fundraising toward research and advocacy. Each year our event helps support 12 migraine and headache non-profits, and offers life-changing insights to people struggling with a highly disabling disease.
