HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

MitoAction is run by a very small but mighty team of 6 individuals. Having the help of the community will allow us to put on an amazing event and raise critical funds to support kids and families affected by mitochondrial disease.

DESCRIPTION

Each year MitoAction hosts a fundraiser in Boston, MA - SKR Derby Day Benefit for Mito.  This event raises critical funds to support families and individuals effected by mitochondrial disease.  Most import, SKR Derby Day raises funds to send children with mitochondrial disease to summer camp and allows MitoAction to grant once-in-a-lifetime wish trips for kids affected by this rare disease.  We are looking for volunteers to help us set-up and decorate for this really important event.  The event will take place in Boston on Saturday, May 7th but decorations can be assembled off-site and ahead of the live event. Decorations include balloon arches & columns, paper flowers, centerpieces, etc.

If you are working off-site, we will have all necessary supplies delivered to you and we will make arrangements for pick-up or delivery of the pre-assembled items one or two days prior to the event on May 7th.
