It’s our first birthday, but you get the presents

We are one!

This time one year ago, Migraine Foundation Aotearoa New Zealand was officially launched. To celebrate our first birthday, we’re giving away five copies of Dr Katy Munro’s book Managing Your Migraine.

We think this book is already a migraine literature classic (check out our review of it here).

Now we’ve been incorporated for a year, many more funding streams are open to us to apply for.

Funders always want to know what we do for our community, so we’re asking you.

To be in the running to win a copy of Managing Your Migraine, simply tell us how the Migraine Foundation has helped you in our first year.

You can do this by filling in this form or sending a short video to us at Make sure you give us your name and email address so we can contact you if you win.
