The United Mitochondrial Disease Foundation and its army of dedicated volunteers raised over $1.7 million in the past year for life-saving research and awareness. To build on that success, the UMDF needs YOU to increase awareness of mitochondrial disease in your community. And a great way to educate others about mitochondrial disease is to organize a fundraising event.
