Walk or Roll, What’s Your Goal?

Throughout September, and during World Mitochondrial Disease Week (September 16 – 22, 2024), Canadians nationwide use their energy to participate in Walk N’ Roll 4 Mito. This event, founded by MitoChampion Louise Gibson in 2015 in Mississauga, Ontario, has now spread across Canada, uniting teams from various regions to walk with a common vision, to ensure all lives are powered by healthy mitochondria!

How to Join Walk N’ Roll 2024

Joining the event is easy. Simply choose a date, time, location, physical activity, and fundraising goal during World Mitochondrial Disease Week. Then, Walk N’ Roll individually, join a team or create a team with others in your community for an hour, a day, or throughout the entire week. You have the freedom to tailor your activity, and we will support you every step of the way.

The funds raised during Walk N’ Roll 4 Mito are crucial—they support our educational initiatives, raise valuable awareness, and fund vital research aimed at preventing and treating mitochondrial disease, as well as supporting mitochondrial health.
