Headaches and Migraine are often severe, disabling conditions which affect those who suffer not only physically, but professionally, emotionally, and socially.

Ninety percent of people in the U.S. have suffered from headaches, including 36 million people with migraine; Twenty-five percent of households are directly affected by migraine headaches. Even worse, 4 percent of Americans are affected by chronic daily headaches, meaning headaches on half or more days each month.

Despite the high prevalence, severe personal and societal costs, and varied types of headaches, woefully little funding is available for research for headache disorders. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) spends only 0.05% of its annual budget on headache related research.

AHMA Runnin for Research is one small step in raising awareness and funding for headache disorders research.
