In 2009, MitoCanada was formed by a group of MitoChondrial disease patients, family and friends with support from dedicated medical professionals. MitoCanada exists to provide support and practical information that will help improve the quality of life and and sense of community for patients and their families.
Grizzly Mountain Events (formerly Smith Events) has been an active supporter of MitoCanada for many years.
In a recent press release, Tony Smith, founder and owner of Grizzly Mountain Events said: "I've had the pleasure of presenting a number of events in support of MitoCanada since 2010, I'm thrilled now to be able to formalize a charitable agreement whereby a portion of proceeds from every event on our calendar will be donated to this worthy cause. I'm looking forward to continuing to support MitoCanada well into the future",
Blaine Penny, CEO and President of MitoCanada had this to say about the new partnership; "Grizzly Mountain Events has been instrumental in raising funds and awareness for MitoCanada since our inception as a charity. We are really appreciative of all the local Bow Valley support and engagement that Grizzly Events has brought for MitoCanada and look forward to many more unique community events ahead.
