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.
