Noah's Ninjas Melbourne 2024

The Bloody Long Walk 2024 - Melbourne

Join Noah's Ninjas in The Bloody Long Walk!

Noah’s favourite thing is to make people laugh, with Star Wars coming a close second! 

But behind his gorgeous smile, Noah bravely fights mito. In his thirteen short years, he has undergone countless medical procedures and had multiple stroke-like episodes, which occur without warning, each one causing significant damage to his brain or spine.

Despite being fed by a tube and having to rely on his wheelchair, Noah is determined to live life to the fullest. 

Ask him how he feels and he says “I choose to be happy.”

“He’s my world, all I want is to find a cure for my boy.” – Kat, Noah’s mum, will be taking on The Bloody Long Walk for the eighth time.

Register today and join Noah's Ninjas to walk 35km and help find a cure for mito!

If you can't walk with us, please sponsor our walk to fund research into desperately needed treatments and cures for this devastating disease.

Every dollar will make a difference.

THANK YOU!
