The Bloody Long Walk
The Bloody Long Walk is a challenge to cure mitochondrial disease (mito). Walk, jog or run and 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.
