Energy is essential to life. Mitochondria provide our cells with energy. When the power supply in our cells fails, it’s called mitochondrial disease. It can happen to anyone at any time and the consequences are devastating. The MitoCanada Foundation is Canada’s only not-for-profit organization focused on mitochondrial disease. We envision a future where all Canadians impacted by this disease feel empowered and supported. We do this by raising awareness, offering support and funding transformational research.
RUNNING FOR THOSE WHO CAN’T is TeamMITO’s mantra. TEAMmito is the grassroots awareness and fundraising program of MitoCanada. Our team members turn their sports passions into athletic feats to benefit those living with mitochondrial disease. This year our goal is to cover 7200kms as a team to RUN ACROSS CANADA! We’d LOVE for you to join our team! Every age, pace and ability is welcome. Running as part of teamMITO comes with many perks. You get to race for a cause bigger than your personal goals, be part of an inclusive team and you get a unique tech MITO shirt!
