Mito 5 Challenge helps raise awareness for Mitochondrial Disease

BRYN MAWR, Pa. (WPVI) -- Two boys at the Shipley School in Bryn Mawr are asking you to take the Mito 5 Challenge.

Neils Strautniks and Brett Mezrow started the challenge to raise awareness of Mitochondrial Disease.

Neils and his brother, Lachlan, battle Mitochondrial Disease.

Their bodies are energy deprived and threatened by life-threatening health problems.

Their classmates tried saying Mitochondrial Disease five times in five seconds.
