Hope Flies Athlete
Become a Hope Flies Athlete by participating in any athletic endeavor, a 5K, 10K, marathon or any event of your choosing. It's a great way to bring people together from different age groups, communities and backgrounds. It also is a tremendous way to raise money for mitochondrial research in honor of someone you know who is suffering or a life that has been lost to a mitochondrial disease.
Become a Hope Flies Athlete Today!
At the Foundation for Mitochondrial Medicine (FMM), we encourage and support family members, friends and community members to run or walk a 5K,10K or any athletic endeavor in memory or honor of a patient with mitochondrial disease. This is a very easy program to set up and can be implemented in just a few short weeks.
Step 1: First, you need to determine in whose honor or memory you plan to be participating. If you don't have a personal connection with FMM we are happy to share stories of many children, teens and adults who battle this disease every day and who would be honored for your help. Their story will help you focus your fundraising efforts and stay motivated on your training program.
Step 2: Next, determine what race or athletic event that you'd like to run, walk or tackle on behalf of FMM. (We can help you identify programs in your area.)
Step 3: Set a goal for fundraising. FMM will provide you a personal fundraising website and provide templates for marketing materials for you to send out to invite friends, family and co-workers to support your initiative. A barometer will be prominent on your personal website that tracks your fundraising progress against your goal. FMM will provide necessary marketing and promotional materials, as well as a Hope Flies Athlete t-shirt.

We appreciate our donors, volunteers, and social media friends – all of you help us on the mission to fund research and treatments for pediatric and adult patients.
Hope can fly. Hope can heal. Thank you.
