Raising Money for
A Mother’s Day gift to honor a migraine sufferer
What do you do for Mother’s Day if your mother is stuck at home with one of her daily disabling migraines? Chelsea, her sister Dani, and their dad gave mom and wife Ilene a memorable Mother’s Day gift – they formed “Team Ilene” and ran a 5K race in Brooklyn to honor her.
By sending inspirational fundraising emails to their family, friends and business colleagues, Team Ilene raised awareness and over $12,000 for MRF.
Their family goal is to “improve the health and quality of life of all migraine victims by creating awareness and promoting research to find new treatments.” Team Ilene was clearly successful in achieving both these goals!
