Join us for TEAMmito Winnipeg’s 2nd annual Walk~Run~Roll in support of MitoCanada!
TEAMmito Winnipeg will be hosting a VIRTUAL 5km Walk~Run~Roll for MITO the week of September 13 to 19 (World MITO awareness week!). This year’s event is being held VIRTUALLY due to current restrictions on gatherings. Participate from the comfort of your own neighbourhood! Last year, we had 100 participants come together to cover 500kms and raised over $7,000. Our goal for this year is to beat participation by getting people moving for MITO across Canada (and around the world) and raising $1 for every km walked~run~rolled!

Aiden was diagnosed with a severe form of mitochondrial disease call Leigh Syndrome at the age of 15 months. Because of his condition, Aiden’s mitochondria don’t produce the energy that his body needs to function properly. Although he lives with daily challenges that most of us take for granted (like the ability to walk or run!), Aiden loves life to the fullest and is the happiest little man you will ever meet. Join us the week of September 13 to 19, move your body and work those mitochondria for those that can’t.
Every donation makes an impact – your donated dollars help raise valuable mitochondrial disease awareness, knowledge and support to patients and their families and funding for transformational research initiatives. The donations you make today will bring us one step closer to a cure tomorrow. Please click on MITOCANADA to learn more.
