Thank you for being part of the global movement on 19 - 25 September 2021!
This year we saw the global community unite to raise awareness of mito. We held a number of events, illuminated in green, and spread the word by sharing stories and mito facts.
The Mito Foundation Symposium
This online symposium explored the theme "Mitochondrial Donation: Beyond Legislative Change", and brought together experts from the UK as well as local patient, clinical, IVF and health systems experts.
Light Up For Mito
Light Up for Mito is a global campaign involving illuminating landmarks in green to raise awareness of mito. Over 237 monuments and landmarks throughout the world were illuminated in green in 2021!
In Australia, we saw 28 monuments light up. Thank you so much to the mito community members for making this happen. Next year, can you get some of your local buildings to take part?
Send a virtual gift !
You can still buy and share the animated Light Up for Mito eCard to help brighten the futures of people impacted by mito.
Munch for Mito
We are so grateful to see many creative events during the awareness week and over $3,800 was raised!
It's a fun event which you can do any time of the year to make a real difference. Get together with friends (you can do it virtually!) to enjoy some of your favourite treats, raise a glass and help raise much-needed awareness.
