Mito Foundation 10th Anniversary Lunch Brisbane



Mito Foundation 10th Anniversary Lunch - Brisbane

2019 marked the 10-year anniversary of the Mito Foundation. While there is still much to do, the Minto Foundation wanted to take the opportunity to reflect on the progress that has been made and thank everyone for their continued support.





Kim was invited due to her outstanding contribution in helping out the Bloody Long Walk in Brisbane and Gold Coast. The Bloody Long Walk is owned and operated by the Mito Foundation so 100% of profits go directly to support people affected by mitochondrial disease, find treatments and cures, and fund education and advocacy programs.





We enjoyed a buffet lunch at Kedron Wavell RSL among other volunteers, friends, family, while we listened from key members of the Mito community.

Doug is a Radiologist & Nuclear Physician who has been active in both public and private medicine in Australia for over 30 years. He is a cofounder of the largest Diagnostic Imaging practice in Australia, Pittwater Radiology & Medical Imaging Australasia Ltd. He and his wife Margie are the parents of two children with mitochondrial disease.
Melinda was 20 when her left eyelid started to droop. This was her first symptom of mitochondrial disease, but it took 17 years for her to receive a diagnosis.

Rebecca was working towards her dream job as a hairdresser when she began experiencing chronic stomach pain. It took multiple doctors and tests before she was diagnosed with mito.



The Mito Foundation supports people affected by mitochondrial disease (mito), funds essential research into the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cures of mitochondrial disorders, and increases awareness and education about this devastating disease.
