The Bloody Long Walk: Melbourne

Sunday, 25 August 2019 (Date TBC)

Yarra Bend Park to St Kilda Sea Baths, Melbourne, VIC

Run/Walk Road/Path/Park

The Bloody Long Walk in Melbourne on Sunday, 25 August 2019 is a 35km challenge to cure mitochondrial disease (mito) from Yarra Bend Park to St Kilda.

Enjoy spectacular scenery whilst raising vital funds to help find a cure for mito. Mito is a debilitating and potentially fatal genetic disorder that impairs the body's ability to convert food into the energy needed to power muscles and major organs; 1 in 200 people are at risk of developing mito.

One Australian child born each week suffers a severe or life-threatening form of mito (and half will die in childhood), making it the second most commonly diagnosed serious genetic disease after cystic fibrosis. A further 20 Australian children born each week are at risk for developing a milder form of mitochondrial disease or other related symptoms such as diabetes, deafness or seizures.
