Our Mission

The Anthony DeMartino Foundation is a non-profit organization.

We provide support and hope to children diagnosed with Muscular Dystrophy. Our main objective is to build awareness of the disease through a 5K Charity Race/Walk and provide monetary contributions to aid in researching for a cure. We draw our inspiration from the life of Anthony DeMartino and in honor of his character we strive to improve the lives of children facing similar obstacles in life.

Find out more about us and what we do, or have a look at our race info page for event details.
