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

I'm walking 35km in The Bloody Long Walk for our gorgeous family friend Maeve. Maeve is the happiest, cheekiest most resilient 5 year old you will ever meet! She brightens everyone’s day with her gorgeous smile and koala bear hugs.  

Despite her short life expectancy, and that she is unable to walk, talk or eat without assistance, she has come such a long way in the last year.  

Maeve loves swimming in the pool and playing with her dog Bobby (who is her BFF). Maeve has also integrated really well with her kindy in Mudjimba. She’s made more friends, than her sisters combined. 

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

This year I am happy to be walking 35km with the Hood family for our Maevey girl. 

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

Every dollar helps, thank you kindly 😊
