Turn off your power for one day and stand together against Mitochondrial Disease
Email [email protected] to request your fundraising pack
Mitochondria are like batteries and are the power supply in all your cells that give them the energy to work. In people who have Mitochondrial Disease these batteries don’t work properly leading to complex health problems.
Power Down and Meet Up For Mito is about turning off your power for one day and spending time with the people you love without the daily distractions of phones, tablets or computers.
We would like you to invite your family and friends to get together and do something fun! Whether you decide to have a picnic, a dinner party, invite the family for lunch, a garden party or a disco - you can take part and make a difference to those affected by Mitochondrial Disease.
When you sign up we will send you a pack that will give you the tools to make your event a big success. From cupcake toppers to ideas for a "Silly Sandwich" competition - we know everyone will have a fantastic time and make lots of memories.
After your event you can of course turn your power back on – people with Mitochondrial Disease sadly can’t, but with your help we want to change that.
It is so easy to join us. Just email [email protected] and we will arrange for you to be sent a pack. You can start planning your get together, invite people along and enjoy the day! Don't forget to take lots of pictures so we can share them with everyone.
Thank you for being part of our first Power Down and Meet Up event. Together we can fight Mitochondrial Disease and give hope to families across the UK.
