Hi,

I have entered The Bloody Long Walk and will be walking 35km this Sunday to cure mitochondrial disease (mito).

Mito is a genetic disorder that robs the body's cells of energy, causing multiple organ dysfunction or failure and often death.

I'm lucky enough to be able to walk 35km (even though my legs might hate me for it the next day)...

Because for some people with mito, just getting out of bed in the morning is impossible. Mito can cause extreme fatigue, loss of sight and hearing, strokes and seizures, chronic muscle pain, intellectual disabilities and more.

One Australian born every week will develop a life threatening form of mito in their lifetime.

So I am walking this Sunday to raise funds to support Australians living with mito and find a cure for this devastating disease.

Will you please sponsor my 35km walk to cure mito?

You can make a tax-deductible donation through my personal fundraising page:

https://bloodylongwalksydney.everydayhero.com/au/wendy

Your donation will help the Australian Mitochondrial Disease Foundation support families affected by mito and search for a cure.

Thanks for your support.

Wendy
