Dearric Winchester's 216-Mile Run
for Migraine Awareness
Kirsten Winchester has had chronic migraine, including optical/aura migraine attacks since she was 20. Her husband Dearric has watched for the last twelve years as her migraines have gotten worse. 

To raise awareness for migraine, his wife, and the other 39 million people living with migraine, Dearric will embark on a grueling 216-mile run starting August 1st thru the 3rd. He's running the Cascade Lakes Relay solo !!

Dearric's goal is to raise $10,000 through his 216-mile run . All of the funds raised will benefit the Association of Migraine Disorders' research grants program .
Shades of Migraine is a podcast that explores the mysteries of migraine from many perspectives: patients, advocates, caregivers, health professionals and researchers.
