Hear Ye Hear Ye! What better way to stay healthy and fit physically and mentally during ISO than doing a Bloody Long Virtual Walk and doing good at the same time. Help cure Mito (mitochondrial disease), a debilitating genetic disorder via this virtual challenge.

Meet Noah as he Captains the Mito Movement for 2020, while bravely fighting Mito himself. In his nine short years, he has undergone countless medical procedures, had multiple stroke-like episodes which occur without warning; each one causing significant brain damage. This little hero is determined to live a full life despite being tube fed and relying on a wheelchair. If you don't have a team and want to join the coolest team around, join Noah's Ninjas. It's a SUPER TEAM set up in honour of his 10th birthday this year.
Complete the challenge and raise $200 to become an official CHAMPION in the mito movement. Plus, you'll receive a Bloody Long Walk Kit with a FREE HAT and T-SHIRT. Check out all the AWESOME PRIZESon offer in this Walk to reward your efforts to bring mito to its knees. Raise $1000 and you'd be a BLOODY LEGEND for making a huge impact for Aussies living with mito!
There are also badges to be collected along the Bloody Long Virtual Walk. For each milestone you reach in the Mito Movement, you'll unlock a new achievement badge on your fundraising page. On top of the badges, there are of course the prizes as aforementioned. If doing good for charity is not enough to motivate you to step outside and walk for mito, you can also simply DONATE.
