Mitochondrial Disease Awareness Event and Fundraiser in Honor of Toby's 5th Grade Graduation


For graduation, more than any other gift for graduation, Toby wanted to cure mitochondrial disease, for himself and all the other kids suffering with it. That desire turned into a huge celebration at Whitaker Ballpark, home of the Lexington Legends.  Nearly 300 friends, family, and Team Toby supporters joined us to celebrate Toby's strength and bravery, learn about mitochondrial disease, and raise money toward finding a cure. The hit of the day was a kids verse adults whiffle ball game on the real field!  Star Wars heroes and Big L ran interference to insure the kids won! Tom Leach, the Voice of the Kentucky Wildcats, was our MC, helping us share information about mito in Big Blue style! We raised awareness and lots of money! Thank you to the Legends ownership, and everyone else who made this event a huge success. Click on the photos link to see all the fun!

Cincinnati Children's Walk 2014

What a way great time we had! 77 walkers joined us at the Cincinnati Zoo to walk with Team Toby!  We had the largest attendance of all the teams at this HUGE event! With registration fees and donations combined, Team Toby gave Cincinnati Children's nearly $10,000.00! That was with no corporate sponsors or matches.  Guess what my goal is for 2015?  Start asking your employers about corporate matching please.
