Looking or a press release for our Matthew Harty Mito Classic street hockey event. This community event was started by 2 friends who wanted to honor Matthew Harty who passed away from mitochondrial disease. This year, both boys are seniors and we'd like to highlight their commitment to MitoAction and all they've done since they were in middle school to raise funds for our organization.
The Matthew Harty Mito Classic has been an important event for MitoAction. We want to take this opportunity celebrate our incredible volunteers who give tirelessly to support our mission.
MitoAction's mission is to improve the quality of life for children, adults, and families living with mitochondrial disease through support, education, outreach, advocacy, and clinical research initiatives.
