With our principal office in Corona and with Robert being a lifelong native of the city, we at Aventus hope to continue to give back to our local communities.

What is Duchenne?

What is Duchenne muscular dystrophy?
Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is a genetic disorder characterized by progressive muscle degeneration and weakness. It is one of nine types of muscular dystrophy.

DMD is caused by an absence of dystrophin, a protein that helps keep muscle cells intact. Symptom onset is in early childhood, usually between ages 3 and 5. The disease primarily affects boys, but in rare cases it can affect girls.

ABC Hopes' message below.

Thank you to everyone who came out for the ABC Hopes 3rd Annual Corona Row-a-Thon to support and build awareness for Destroy Duchenne.  We are proud to announce that together we raised $3,000 for Destroy Duchenne and rowed a combined 623,475 meters. We raised these funds as a community through registration sign-ups and charitable donations. 

All attendees present can agree that there is no better way to spend a morning than supporting a great cause, especially our new Row-A-Thon Champions, CrossFit 714, who finished in First Place. Other notable teams in attendances were the Corona Fire and Police Department and CNUSD.  

We would also like to thank our volunteers, vendors, and sponsors for showing up and donating their time and resources to helping us make the 2018 Corona Row-A-Thon a success.
