The CEO Golfers care about initiatives with charitable aim. The objective of
the CEO Golfers World Challenge 2010 is to collect funds to benefit the
Fondazione Legato Dino Ferrari, Sezione “Enzo e Dino Ferrari” of Modena, which
for the past thirty years has been engaged in supporting research into the
treatment of Muscular Dystrophy.
The Fondazione Legato Dino Ferrari was originally set up by Enzo Ferrari in
memory of his son Dino who died in 1956 of a serious form of muscular dystrophy.
As a charitable body, its aim is to promote research into the diagnosis and
genetics of Muscular Dystrophy and to support initiatives for assistance to
persons suffering from this disease. The foundation is the concrete expression
of Enzo Ferrari’s desire to fight a terrible disease and ultimately to find an
effective treatment. His commitment continues today, thanks also to the
tenacious and ongoing presence of his son Piero Ferrari.
In the healthcare field it is active in family genetic counseling, in treatment
of respiratory failure and in physiotherapy targeted on maintenance of
functional abilities. In the social-welfare field it devotes itself to
assistance of dystrophic and their families in order to promote self-sufficiency
and to favor the social integration of the disabled also in cooperation with
