mitoHOPE program

The Bloody Long Walk 2023 - Mornington Peninsula

We're walking 35km in The Bloody Long Walk!

Our team is walking 35km in The Bloody Long Walk to help Australians living with mitochondrial disease.

We know weโ€™ll cross the finish line exhausted and blistered, but thatโ€™s nothing compared to what people with mitochondrial disease (mito) go through every day of their lives.

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

Please join our team and/or sponsor our walk - every dollar raised will make a difference.

THANK YOU!

About our team: The mitoHOPE program has brought us together! Led by Monash University, the mitoHOPE program has formed an Australian-wide consortium to conduct mitochondrial donation and reproductive options pilot program. The Mito Foundation is a key collaborator in the program. Find out more:ย https://www.monash.edu/medicine/mitohope
