Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

No.  Hope Treks is a register Limited Liability Corporation (LLC), a small business.

The Hope for Gus Foundation is a non-profit that funds medical research for Duchenne muscular dystrophy. And Hope Treks DONATES all of their profits to Hope for Gus.  But that is our only affiliation – everything else about the business and the non-profit are completely separate.
