Act for Alana (Sunshine Coast 2019)

The Bloody Long Walk 2019 - Sunshine Coast

We are walking 35kms for Alana. That's a Bloody Long Walk!

Six year old Alana was diagnosed with mito when she was 3yo, after extensive and invasive investigations.  Her diagnosis was made possible through research programs supporting leading edge genetic testing.  

Alana’s symptoms are significant – she does not have the strength or coordination to walk or talk, she is fed through a peg into her stomach and she is losing her hearing.  

But she is determined and pushes through intensive therapy to grow stronger, always with a smile on her face.  Alana’s future would benefit from a better understanding of the disease, research into treatment and ultimately a cure.  

The funds raised through the Bloody Long Walk enable the Mito Foundation to fund these programs and help sufferers like our beautiful Alana.  Walk with us, volunteer or donate to this important cause.

Please sponsor our walk to help fund research into desperately needed treatments and cures for this devastating disease.

Every dollar will make a difference!

It’ll be bloody tough but with your support, we know we can do it. THANK YOU!

Thank you to our Sponsors
