It’s not just lighting up that our missions are helping to make happen for World Mito Week (19th-25th September).
Steph from Steph & Jake’s Mito Mission is having her head shaved, with just our logo ‘zap’ left! Jake and Dad Paul will have the ‘zap’ shaved in to the side of their heads.
All donations are gratefully received

Summer has brought out some great fundraising activity. Some new Mito Heroes are putting their energy into raising funds for mitochondrial research.
Huge thanks to Des doing the Great North 10k for Steph and Jake’s Mito Mission, Sean cycling 2021 miles in 2021 for Emma’s Mito Mission and Jake doing the Wolverhampton 5k Colour Obstacle Rush for Regan’s Mito Mission.

The global pandemic ruling out most events has seen charities needing to get more creative with their fundraising. We’re thrilled that our new monthly raffle on Facebook has been a great success, raising thousands of pounds for much needed mito research since it started in January.
We call the group ‘My Mito Mission’s Fab FUNdraising Friends’ and value each and every member. There are a maximum of 100 numbers sold monthly, so everyone with a number has at least a 1 in 100 chance of winning one of our 3 great prizes. And our first prize is valued at a fantastic £300!
As all the prizes so far have been donated by our wonderful supporters – EVERY SINGLE PENNY we’ve raised goes directly to our cause.
We’d love you to join us!
One of our ‘missionee’ families is spending their Easter Holidays not only raising awareness for mito and funds for research – but clearing up their area too.
Regan of Regan’s Mito Mission is seriously affected by mito, and his siblings Kai and Laci to a lesser degree. This hasn’t stopped the family setting out to collect an amazing 50 large bags of litter from around their home in Cradley Heath, West Midlands.
