Walk for Tyler

By Lauren Caulfield

Freycinet Challenge!

Some of my work mates are doing the Freycinet challenge 2022 and have decided to raise some money for the mito foundation while doing so! 

Matt Wood, Geoff Hudson, Peter Smart and Mark McKeon are raising money by entering in the Freycinet 2022 multi-sport race. The race consists of Geoff trail running 16.9 km on day one and 9.19km on day two, Matt bike racing 40 km on day one and 40 km on day two, Pete mountain biking 18.1km with an elevation of 508m on day one and 21.6km with an elevation of 524m on day two and Mark will paddle 10km on day one and 10km on day two!

Show your support to the guys and donate to an important cause! 

Bloody long walk!

35km done and dusted! A huge thankyou to every single person who has taken the time to read Tyler’s story and those who have donated! 35km in a day isn’t something I will rush out and do again, but the pain I feel tonight is nothing compared to the pain the families affected by mito feel. Thankyou to everyone who sent me messages of encouragement, and a massive thankyou to my beautiful partner James for joining me for 20km of the journey! 

It’s not too late to donate or read Tyler’s story. 

Tyler’s Story

Please take the time to read about Tyler’s life and what James and Abbey faced along their journey. 

I'm raising vital funds for mito!

I’m walking 35km in memory of Tyler to help the Mito Foundation support the mito community whilst seeking a cure.  Mitochondrial disease (mito) is a rare life threatening disease that can affect anyone at any age.

The Mito Foundation provides information and support services to connect mito patients and their families to help them feel less alone while funding research to develop meaningful treatments and cures.

You can help too, by donating to my fundraiser. Together we can create real change for the mito community.


Thank you to my Sponsors
