About this tournament

2nd installment of the Muscles for Romito Charity Tournament. This year it will be held at Prickly Pines DGC in Elizabeth Colorado.

This is a TROPHY ONLY EVENT and will also be a NEXTGEN TOUR STOP!!

Duchenne’s muscular dystrophy (DMD) is an inherited muscle wasting disease characterized by progressive muscle weakness. This muscle weakness occurs when an affected child’s muscle tissue is unable to produce a structural protein called dystrophin. Without this vital protein, muscles suffer significant damage and eventually die.

The progression of DMD causes orthopedic complications, respiratory failure, and heart failure. Boys with DMD are diagnosed in early childhood and are confined to a wheelchair by early adolescence. Because there is no cure for DMD, the life expectancy for a diagnosed child is the late twenties.

The mission of the Romito Foundation is to improve the treatment and quality of life for all persons living with Duchenne’s muscular dystrophy. We will aid current and future medical research and support established non-profit organizations with like interests.

Thank you for participating in the 2nd annual Muscles for Romito tournament. All proceeds go directly to the foundation to give these boys an opportunity to participate in activities that most of us take for granted.
