I'm Walking 35km to Cure Mito in The Bloody Long Walk!

I'm walking 35km in The Bloody Long Walk to help Australians living with mitochondrial disease.

That’s 46,200 steps in one day!

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

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

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

Every dollar will make a difference!

My 35km walk will be bloody tough, but with your support, I know I can do it.

Well done Rupert. Enjoy your ‘Bloody Long Walk’ for this good cause. I know Cripple Cock well enough to the point of falling down. From my Aunts place in Dawlish, Devon. I suggest you secrete a small phial of something to ‘Splice the Mainbrace’ en route for stamina. Have a good one.


Dave Ross

Good for your and good luck!

Hat off to you for doing this walk, Strikey!
