Zombie Gives Back: Mito Dawgs

Zombie Gives Back: Mito Dawgs

Mito Dawgs is a student based organization at the University of Georgia with a mission to raise awareness about mitochondrial diseases. Mito Dawgs partners with the United Mitochondrial Disease Foundation to promote research and education for the diagnosis, treatment, and cure of mitochondrial disorders and to provide support to affected individuals and families. All of the proceeds from Mito Dawg’s various fundraising events go straight to the United Mitochondrial Disease Foundation to aid in their research on mitochondrial disease.

 

HOW THEY ARE GIVING BACK

 

Through persistent funding of scientific research and strong advocacy efforts, Mito Dawgs has helped make significant progress toward the development of treatments and cures for mitochondrial diseases.
