I did it! 🤩 I who have mitochondrial disease, encompassing: fatigue, muscle weakness, dystonia, aphasia, blindness and no treatments, completed a 5k bike ride! 🚴
I never thought achieving something like this would be possible but with the support of wheels for all, it was. On about lap 8, my muscles were starting to go a bit like jelly, but thinking of our leigh network mito angels, of my baby brother who passed to the illness, and the warriors leigh network supports the reason i took the challenge, gave me the strength to keep going. A huge thank you to everyone who came to cheer me on, it meant so much to see you all there.
A massive thank you to everyone who has so generously donated. You are helping to support our mito families and advance research. 😊
