Mito Walk and Roll 5K Marathan
The UCSD Mito Research Fund is a non-profit organization that was founded by the Whaley Family. The Fund was made to help raise awareness, as well as research costs to help find a cure for Mitochondrial Disease. Research efforts go directly to the Mitochondrial and Metabolic Disease Center at the University of California, San Diego. 

Mitochondrial disease is a chronic, genetic disorder that occurs when the mitochondria of the cell fail to produce energy for the cell or for organ function. When it fails, less energy is produced and generated within the cell. Whole systems begin to fail and life is severly compromised. 

Children with the disease are treated at both UCSD Medical Center aand Rady Children’s Hospital. The joint mission is to create a comprehensive center for research, diagnosis, and treatment and young adults with the disease.

Children with mitochondrial disease have a 50% chance of living until the age of 10. Mitochondrial dysfunction has been linked to many other diseases including Autism, Parkinson, PTSD, Diabetes, Alzheimer’s, Cancer, Obesity and infertility. If a cure is found for mitochondrial, all of these diseases and disorders will benefit. The little girls pictured are Kailyn and Charis. They are 3 and 5 and cannot walk or talk because of this disease. Please help us find a cure to save their lives.
