Bloody Long Trek 2019

By Kay SUTHERLAND

Time to get really active!

Not long to go now, I'm getting excited, & aprehensive, at the same time! Getting more focussed on fundraising, & really appreciative of the support already received. Alana & Mito need help to find a cure!my training is on track, & I'm excited to visit Alice Springs & the outback. The other 'Mito Warriors' on this trek are awesome women. I feel blessed to be with them.

I'm trekking for mito

I'm challenging myself to trek 5 days across the Australian outback in support of people living with mito, including my granddaughter, Alana, who was born with Mito. Alana is now 6, she cannot walk, talk, or eat & is incontinent, her hearing is declining, so she wears hearing aids. She is tube fed, directly into her stomach, & needs full time care. Alana attends a special school, where her abilities are maximized, & she has all her daily needs attended to. Alana thrives at school, enjoying the stimulus & support. Her life includes regular therapy sessions, to develop her abilities & potential. I am her Nanny & Carer, so accompany her to these appointments - a busy schedule!

Please support my Bloody Long Trek and help me to reach my goal by donating to this page. 

Each dollar you give will make an impact by funding research into treatments and cures for mito and by providing support services to the mito community. 

Thank you for your generosity.
