THE FOUNDATION

Little Hercules Foundation is a registered, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization based in Dublin, Ohio. Little Hercules Foundation got its start in January 2013 when three moms, two of whom had sons diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, decided to host events to help fund research. Since then, Little Hercules Foundation has grown into much more. We focus on improving the lives of those diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy through four main pillars: Advocacy, Awareness, Family Assistance and Funding Research.


THE FAMILIES

Little Hercules Foundation’s mission is to improve the lives of those diagnosed with – and families facing – Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Whether we are advocating, spreading awareness, or funding research, we are always working for our greater Duchenne community. We have a responsibility to help push the science forward and enable this generation and future generations to have an opportunity for a better quality of life; a full life. The pictures on our site are real. They are pictures of Ohio-based families that we have encountered on our journey; who fight along-side of us and who stare Duchenne in the face along with us every day. These boys are each unique in their mutations, but all of them just want the chance to grow up.
