World Mitochondrial Disease Week 18-24 Sept 2022

5 July 2022

Light Up Green to raise awareness!

Every year in September, hundreds of buildings, landmarks and monuments around the world light up green for World Mitochondrial Disease Week, to raise awareness about mito. 

Why not get involved and ask a building in your area to take part?

It could be a bridge, castle, town hall, school, the local pub or even your own house – if it's green it gets seen!

Previous years have seen some of the UK's most iconic sites go green for mito, including Battersea Power Station, Mersey Gateway Bridge, Leeds Castle and Blackpool Tower. So you'll be in a prestigious company!

How easy is it to Light Up Green?

As easy as changing a light bulb! Most public sites will be happy to take part when asked, provided they are given enough notice.

Be sure to say it's for World Mitochondrial Disease Week and part of a global awareness-raising campaign. Personal stories are often the most engaging, so if you have your own reason for wanting to raise awareness, it can help to share that too. 

We can provide a pre-written letter template to help you, if you like. Just email [email protected]

Share your photos #MitoAware

We'll be sharing photos of buildings in all their green glory throughout World Mitochondrial Disease Week (18-24 Sept), so be sure to email us your pics or tag us on social media!
