Pennies or pounds – every fundraising effort counts. From a fun run to a marathon … however far you’re able to go to help us, and whatever means you choose – it’s appreciated!

Maybe you can volunteer your time or /expertise? We’d love to explore this further with you. Just get in touch.

by becoming a corporate supporter.

Why choose My Mito Mission?

We know it’s important to many businesses to choose a charity that’s meaningful to as many people as possible.

We offer that opportunity.

Become My Mito Mission Corporate Supporters

That’s because mitochondrial research isn’t solely relevant to people with mitochondrial disease. MILLIONS in the UK have common conditions known to also involve damage to the mitochondria – such as cancer, dementia, heart disease and MANY more. 

Why get involved?

  • create positive PR opportunities
  • reach new audiences and drive business
  • fulfil your corporate social responsibility aspirations
  • align with a distinctive, innovative charity dedicated to leading awareness in an exciting, new field of medical research – that could make a difference to MILLIONS of lives
  • receive promotional materials acknowledging your support – certificates, banners etc

How could your business help My Mito Mission?

There are a host of ways for your company to get involved either nationally, or with an individual mission at a more local level…

Become a Regular Mito Hero

Commit to a regular minimum donation of £20 a month. Links are below if you’d like to sign up right now as a corporate supporter for My Mito Mission.
