Event Details

The 4th Annual VIRTUAL #CureforCluster 5k for Cluster Headache Research by Clusterbusters is Saturday, June 20th, 2020. A virtual 5k allows clusterheads from around the globe to participate and raise awareness for cluster headaches in their hometowns. We feel this is the best way to raise awareness and funding across the country and internationally. Whether it’s just you or a group of people, you simply sign up on our website, and you’ll receive your t-shirt and race bag in the mail a few days before June 20th. Don’t forget to post your photos of your participation on social media with #CureforCluster!

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.
