My name is Jon Paradowski. I'm a regular guy from Regina, Saskatchewan with a dream. I run 20 - 30 kms a day to raise funds for MitoCanada and hope for everyone living with a mitochondrial disease.
Mitochondria are mighty, microscopic, energy-producing structures. We all have trillions of these tiny powerhouses fueling almost every cell in our bodies. Creating more than 90% of the energy we need to survive, they keep our hearts beating, lungs inflating, brains thinking, and bodies moving.
My partner, Marsha, has a mito disease called McCardle's. With the help of physicians, friends and MitoCanada, we’re experiencing a better life together.
I want to spread passion, love, happiness and belief in one another. I want assure people that there is always hope when we work together and inspiring one another.
My dream is to raise $72,690 for MitoCanada -- $10 for every kilometer I run.
Please help me reach my dream of supporting MitoCanada and sharing the Faces of Mito. Thank you!
