Raise money for MitoCanada

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 is comprised of exceptional individuals from across the country who turn their sports passions into special events and athletic feats to benefit those living with mitochondrial disease.  

On Sunday, May 31st, six runners will take on the marathon distance and compete for the prestigious Guinness World Record title of "Most funds raised while running the marathon distance".  We encourage you to tune in LIVE from 8am-1pm (MST) where Daniel Bowie will host an engaging broadcast featuring the runner show down along with a variety of interviews with key MitoCanada supporters and partners.

All event details and how to watch live (Facebook and YouTube) can be found HERE
