Mornington Peninsula


Important Event Changes

We have been advised by local authorities that we are unable to proceed with The Bloody Long Walk Mornington Peninsula this Sunday 14 November.

The forecast for increasingly hazardous weather conditions, in an area which is already experiencing instability due to recent weather events, means that the safety risk to participants is too high. Various emergency services and safety officials have been involved in this difficult but unavoidable decision.

We are very sorry to disappoint our participants but trust they understand we must accept this decision to ensure everyone’s safety.

Our thoughts are with the members of the mito community who so desperately rely on the funds raised from this event and get enormous satisfaction from seeing the committed walkers in the Mito Movement take on this challenge to raise awareness and to help find a cure.

The past two years have been incredibly challenging to the mito community who are amongst the most vulnerable and who have felt the strain of the ongoing COVID-19 situation more than most.

We appreciate the patience of our walkers during the COVID-19 pandemic which has forced us to postpone this event already this year. But please know – we are determined to bring The Bloody Long Walk to The Mornington Peninsula as soon as possible!

We will channel the amazing will, determination and positivity of all the incredible mito warriors like Noah our Captain of the Mito Movement and we will soldier on!

We are already working with local authorities to secure a new date and hope to have that sorted within a week.  Our small team is hustling like crazy to get this message to the thousands of good eggs like you who have signed up in support of this amazing event.

We’re unable to respond to individual enquiries at this stage so please bear with us as the dust (or rain and wind) settles and we get everything sorted – you’ll be the first to hear.

Thank you for your understanding and commitment to the Mito Movement.

The Mito Foundation would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work. We pay respect to their cultures and to elders past, present and emerging. We extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today.
