ClusterBusters Cure For Cluster VIRTUAL 5k Run/Walk
Please join us for our third annual virtual 5k on June 22nd. Anyone around the world can participate by registering on the #CureforCluster website. We will send a race packet and t-shirt to U.S. and international runners and walkers 1-2 weeks beforehand. On June 22nd, you can run or walk along a trail, on a treadmill, with friends and family, or over your lunch break. Post your progress on social media for a chance to win a raffle prize and raise awareness for cluster headache attacks.
100% of race proceeds go toward funding research for cluster headaches so we can find better and better treatments, and someday, a cure.
We had 78 participants in 7 countries in 2018, and we hope to break that record on Saturday, June 22nd, 2019!
