About Us

DaHunt for the Cure was founded by Charles and Diane Medici in 2008, with its mission to support various local charities. The idea was an immediate success! People were drawn to the combination of the great outdoors, a little friendly competition, camaraderie with fellow business professionals, and help the needs of children and there families.

The inspiration for DaHunt for the Cure was born from the personal way blood cancer has touched my life since my nephew, Peter, was diagnosed with leukemia. We personally invite you to participate in this event, in Peter’s honor and in support of all those that are still fighting today! Peter is now an extremely healthy college graduate in his early 20s and is working for the family business as a project manager. 

DaHunt for the Cure joined the Community Foundation of Orange & Sullivan Donor Advised Fund in 2017. This will allow us to continue the support of these very important causes, for years to come. Each year we will choose a different one of our favorite charities to be highlighted for that year.

Please join us in support of these wonderful and worthy causes!
