2nd Annual Mito Walk and Roll 5K


Featuring a classic car show, carnival games, live music, and more, the 2nd Annual Mito Walk and Roll 5K will bring together the San Diego community at NTC Park at Liberty Station to support research for mitochondrial disease on Saturday, May 17, from 11am-3pm. A genetic disorder that results from failures of the mitochondria, children born with MD currently have a 50 percent chance of living past age 10 and only 20 percent make it to age 20. Proceeds from the Mito Walk will benefit the UC San Diego Mitochondrial and Metabolic Disease Center, co-directed by Richard Haas, MD and Robert Naviaux, MD, PhD, which is at the forefront of research to understand and better treat MD and related diseases.
