The Mitochondrial Research Fund at UC San Diego Health is proud to announce the seventh annual Mito Safari 5K Run and Walk on Saturday, May 18, 2019 at San Diego’s historic Liberty Station. Proceeds will benefit the Mitochondrial and Metabolic Disease Center at UC San Diego Health. According to the United Mitochondrial Disease Foundation, every 30 minutes a child is born who will develop a mitochondrial disease—and only half will live past their 10th birthday. Mitochondrial dysfunction has been linked to afflictions such as cancer, autism, diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, infertility, and obesity.
We can change this, but we need your help. As this exciting event approaches, we invite you to take advantage of the opportunities to help change thousands of community lives through your support.
Your support will bring us closer to reaching our ambitious goals in the fight against mitochondrial disease and dysfunction.
