Back in May, the Eview Group set out to tackle an exceptional feat; to walk 50kms (that's 15kms more than The Bloody Long Walk) to raise awareness and funding for people impacted by mitochondrial disease (mito).
Eview Group is very close to the cause as their Queensland Director, Joel Hood has a daughter Maeve, who lives with mito. Ever since Maeve's diagnosis the family has been involved with The Bloody Long Walk series, typically in Melbourne and now this year on the Sunshine Coast as the family has relocated.
It was inspiring to see Joel fly back to Melbourne to join his colleagues from Eview and together raise over $7,000 to fund research that brings us closer to effective diagnosis, treatments and eventual cures for mito.
It doesn't look like Joel's colleagues intend to stop at one walk, with plans to tackle The Bloody Long Walk in the Mornington Peninsula later this year.
The foundation is thankful for the hard work of its supporters who continue to advocate and fundraise on behalf of Australians impacted by mito.
