Shades for migraine goes to Time Square

We want to make the biggest impact on June 21, Migraine Solidarity Day so we are coming down to New York City a day early to tell people in Times Square about Migraine Solidarity Day! We want to see you there, so join us on June 20th to raise awareness for Migraine Solidarity Day.

Where: The Red Steps at Times Square located at 200 W 47th St.

When: We will arrive at the red steps around 12:30 p.m. We will be wearing purple sunglasses and purple Shades for Migraine t-shirts, you won’t miss us!

What to bring: Upbeat energy and your friends and family! Signs and posters are also welcome! We will provide you with purple shades and a Shades for Migraine t-shirt.

What to expect: There is power in numbers. We want to have a big group there to show support for people with migraine. We will have a camera crew present taking video throughout the day. The camera crew will be conducting quick interviews with people who come to show their support and people on the streets of Times Square. If you want to be on video, we welcome you to jump in, if you don’t that’s fine, too! By just being there, you are helping take a stance on migraine! You can also take a few selfies in our selfie booth provided by DigiBooths! You will be able to snap some pics and share them straight to your phone from the booth for instant sharing!

Shades for Migraine Goes to the TODAY Show

Join us on June 21st, Migraine Solidarity Day, to show your support for over 39 million Americans living with migraine disease.

For the third year in a row, we will be taking Shades for Migraine to the TODAY Show to bring national attention to this disease. Remember, the largest group at the plaza makes the biggest impact and has the best chance to get on TV. We want to be that group, so we need you there!


Where: The TODAY plaza is located in Rockefeller Center between 48th and 49th streets and 5th Ave. and the Avenue of the Americas (6th Ave.). Find a map here.

When: Arrive by 5 a.m. While the broadcast doesn’t start until 7 a.m., we want to have time to group together, distribute sunglasses and t-shirts, and of course, get a front row spot!

Security: Expect to go through security on 48th Street before being admitted.

What to bring: We will provide you with t-shirts and sunglasses to spread the Shades for Migraine message, but we do ask that you bring a sign, the bigger and brighter – the better!
