MonashMitoLab completed the Bloody Long Walk Melbourne 2016

This Sunday, the Ryan Lab (aka "MonashMitoLab") participated in the 2016 edition of the Bloody Long Walk in Melbourne to raise awareness for mitochondrial diseases.

Taking place with typical Melbourne weather, our long journey started at Yarra Bend Park and took us along the Yarra River through the beautiful Melbourne suburbs and ending at St Kilda Beach.

Despite heavy rain, mud and flooded footpaths, the lab team was excited to go through some pain for the good cause.

After some grueling 35k, which pushed everyone to their limits, we finished in less than 6h and under a blue sky and sunshine in St Kilda.

We want to say thank you to the amdf for organising the Bloody Long Walk and for their work to cure mitochondrial diseases.
