Garden Center
We encourage you to come up with your own unique ideas or stick with events that have been proven to be successful over time. The creativity we’ve seen has been incredible. Why not:

  • Present an “a-thon” – walk, run, read, scrap, ski, dance, skip or clean
  • Sell items at a garage, bake or craft sale, BBQ or car wash
  • Organize a tournament
  • Do a 50/50 raffle at a local sporting, work or community event
  • Host a live or silent auction
  • Organize a dress-down or theme day
  • Present a dinner, dance or even a concert.

The possibilities are endless – please do something that inspires you and others to help transform the outlook for individuals living with or caring for someone with mitochondrial disease.
