Event Details

The 7th Annual #CureForCluster Virtual 5k Run/Walk is an event to support cluster headache awareness and raise funding for cluster headache research. Anyone in the world can participate by signing up on the Race Website.

The #CureforCluster 5k began in 2016 as an in-person event in Denver, Colorado, and has since become a virtual event, so “clusterheads” worldwide can join in. You can run or walk in the comfort of your own home if you have a treadmill, around your neighborhood, or a local park.

Always follow precautions advised for your health needs and be respectful of others around you. We encourage you to use this opportunity to get your friends and family involved for support if you are able to safely participate outdoors.

Runners and walkers are encouraged to photograph themselves in their #CureforCluster t-shirt and post on social media using the hashtag. The goal is to flood our accounts with images of clusterheads and their supporters. If you’re unable to participate due to health or time constraints, we encourage you to donate on behalf of a participant or directly to research.

All proceeds from the event go to cluster headache research through Clusterbusters, Inc, a non-profit organization founded in 2002 to promote research, education, and awareness of the condition.

Organizer

ClusterbustersClusterbusters is dedicated to raising awareness for cluster headache. This form of Trigeminal Autonomic Cephalalgia is considered more painful than childbirth, kidney stones, and gunshot wounds. Cluster headaches are often nicknamed “suicide headaches,” and respond best to high-flow oxygen. Clusterbusters furthers cluster headache research by partnering with and advising medical professionals and innovators to develop new treatments. It educates medical professionals and the patient community in order to reduce time to diagnosis and increase access to appropriate treatments. Clusterbusters’ online and face-to-face support and education helps patients lead their best lives, and sometimes saves lives.
