about Mitocanada



‚ÄčIn 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 since 2010.


Blaine Penny, CEO and President of MitoCanada: "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.
