I am walking 35km to cure mito

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

My Achievements
