About DaHunt for the Cure . . .

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 their 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. Peter is now an extremely healthy young man in his early 30’s and is now married and has a beautiful baby boy.  He works as a project manager with the family business.

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!

Charities We Support

DaHunt For The Cure proudly supports the following charities:


Founded in 1999, the Community Foundation of Orange and Sullivan currently manages nearly 300 separate component funds and has distributed over $11 million in charitable grants and educational scholarships since the organization was established. These numbers continue to grow as more people step forward as generous participants in the vision of a stronger community. There are many different ways of giving to and through the Community Foundation. Funds can be established for a variety of charitable purposes, and can support one or multiple charities.


On June 21, 1847, a group of Poughkeepsie women met to form the Female Guardian Society to care for the poor, abandoned and neglected in their communities, most especially the children. Their belief was that children deserve a nurturing and caring environment.

More than 170 years later, the underlying mission of the Children’s Home of Poughkeepsie is the same: to provide a safe and nurturing environment that improves lives and empowers at-risk children and families in the Hudson Valley and surrounding communities.


Kids for Kids Foundation is a community of friends, families, and colleagues raising money for organizations that support children and families struggling with medical challenges.

Our family-focused events celebrate all that we have to be grateful for and serve to inspire the next generation of humanitarians – our children.


GiGi’s Playhouse Down Syndrome Achievement Center’s mission is to change the way the world views Down syndrome through national campaigns, educational programs, and by empowering individuals with Down syndrome, their families and the community. We offer free therapeutic and educational programming to
individuals with Down syndrome and their families.



The mission of the Cancer Resource Center of the Hudson Valley is to make the cancer journey easier to bear for cancer patients and their families by being the voice of advocacy and support for the Hudson Valley community of people living with and affected by cancer and providing informational and educational resources and support services to improve quality of life through all stages of the cancer journey.
