The United Mitochondrial Foundation was created to promote research and education for the diagnosis, treatment, and cure of mitochondrial disorders and to provide support to affected individuals and families. Every year, cities around the country host an Energy For Life walk where families and organizations walk to remember loved ones and raise funds for research and advocacy. Presently, there is NO CURE or TREATMENT for mitochondrial disease. By supporting this walk, YOU are bringing us closer to a cure and giving kids like Jojo the opportunity for a long and full life.
