Val Dogs Melbourne

The Bloody Long Walk 2019 - Melbourne

We're walking 35 kilometres in The Bloody Long Walk. That’s 46,200 steps in one day!

We know we'll cross the finish line exhausted and blistered, but that’s nothing compared to what people with mitochondrial disease (mito) go through every day.

Mito robs the body’s cells of energy, causing multiple organ dysfunction or failure. Mito can affect anyone at any age.

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
