Walk With Us!

Find a walk and join us!

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed life as we know it, but it did not change the need for funding vital programs and services that support our patient families and accelerate the pace of research. The health and safety of our patient families, teams and fundraisers, is our top priority. Where it is possible, we will be hosting our Energy for Life Walkathon (& Run) events both in person and virtually.

We invite you to register and fundraise in one of our walk cities listed below. On each event page, we will provide details on how to participate in person and virtually.

Please see our recommendations for patients families regarding the coronavirus.

What participants are saying about EFL

For those of us, like my family, who have lost a loved one to a mitochondrial disease, this is the opportunity to honor their memory. As individuals, there is little we are able to do in the fight against Mito disease, but the EFL Walks give us a chance to come together and make a large impact on the battle that will one day win the war.

Ken & Karen Loftus

Ken’s Karetakers, Southern Wisconsin Energy For Life Walk

We walk to not only raise funds to find a cure for mito but we do it to promote awareness and education about the disease. It has impacted us and our family personally.
