I’m walking 35km in The Bloody Long Walk. That’s 46,200 steps in one day!

I am walking 35 kilometres in The Bloody Long Walk for my beautiful 5 year old granddaughter Lola who was diagnosed with Mitochondrial Leigh's disease in 2017.

Mitochondrial disease (mito) affects 1 in 5000 people, making it the second most commonly diagnosed, serious genetic disease after cystic fibrosis. It is terminal; there is no cure and few effective treatments. Many people are symptomatic but undiagnosed or misdiagnosed, some are not yet symptomatic, and others are unknowingly at risk of passing the disease on to their children.

This is why The Bloody Long Walk is so important, not only does the event raise vital funds, it also raises awareness of this debilitating disease. We fight and hope for a cure or treatment every day.

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

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. THANK YOU!
