Mark your calendars and plan to join MitoAction for the hottest Derby Day event in Boston! Big hats, bow ties, incredible silent and live auction items, signature mint juleps – we’ll have it all!
The annual Sandra K. Russell Derby Day Benefit for Mito is held in honor of Sandra Russell, who lost her battle to mitochondrial disease in 2008. Sandra was the wife of MitoAction Board Member, Gordon Russell, and mother of Derby Day Committee Members Jonathan Russell, Buck Russell and his wife Rebecca Russell.
To date, Derby Day has raised over $1.6 million towards improving the lives of patients and families suffering from mitochondrial disease. Because of the generous support of our Derby Day sponsors, volunteers, and attendees, MitoAction continues to provide vital support to those who courageously face the day to day challenges of this devastating rare disease.
