"RUNNING" FOR SUPPORTING THE INTERNATIONAL MITO-PATIENTS NETWORK

MEET fellows launched a crowdfunding campaign on kapipal website for collecting money in order to help the “International Mito-Patients Network” (www.mitopatients.org), to develop a standard therapy for dealing with muscular pain in mitochondrial diseases.

The campaign objective is simple:

Raising awareness about mitochondrial diseases and raising money to help IMP network to develop a standard therapy for dealing with muscular pain in mitochondrial diseases. To launch this campaign, fellows did a simple equation: mitochondria = energy = running, dancing, climbing, biking. Therefore, as young and motivated researchers involved in the mitochondrial field they  run, dance, climb and bike to raise money. Indeed, fellows believe that participating to sport events is a very good way to highlight the importance and the power of mitochondria and thus the importance of helping people that are lacking healthy ones.

Mitochondrial patients worldwide, as represented by International Mito Patients, benefit from a good network between patients, researchers, clinicians and caretakers. And this is also valid the other way around: researchers, clinicians and caretakers benefit from a dialogue with patients. This is the main reason for IMP to work closely together with the MEET Project.

IMP Mission is to increase the quality of life for people with mitochondrial diseases by facilitating cross-border cooperation and collaboration among national patients' organizations. So, it is for this reason that MEET Consortium and MEET fellows will collect money for IMP, emphasizing once again the importance of collaborating among researchers, patients and clinicians, for fighting together!

MEET'S FUNDRAISING ACTIVITIES CONTINUE UNTIL THE END OF THIS YEAR.

PLEASE SUPPORT MEET AND IMP WITH YOUR DONATIONS!!!
