Giving Back to Our Community
dmc Team was founded with an outward focus, knowing we can accomplish more as a group than as individuals. Unlike many sports teams, designed with the goal of internally promoting its athletes, we are focused on a broader goal of giving back to our community and paying it forward for future dmc Team athletes. We believe that this is a unique and important aspect of our team and will contribute to our long-term legacy.
To actively demonstrate our core values of ‘Community Outreach’ and ‘Ambassadors for our Sports’, dmc Team supports two local non-profit organizations, Save Mount Diablo and Girls on the Run, by generously donating our time and money.
Save Mount Diablo
Save Mount Diablo’s mission is to preserve Mount Diablo’s peaks, surrounding foothills, and watersheds through land acquisition and preservation strategies designed to protect the mountain’s natural beauty, biological diversity, and historic and agricultural heritage; enhance our area’s quality of life; and provide recreational opportunities consistent with protection of natural resources.
dmc Team actively uses Mount Diablo as a training venue for trail running and road/mountain biking. As a financial sponsor of SMD’s trail running and cycling events, we support land preservation for athletes of the future to enjoy this unique and special training ground. dmc team members actively support SMD’s events through participation, volunteerism, and event planning.
Girls on the Run
Founded in 2002, Girls on the Run of the Bay Area educates and builds confidence in young girls through
non-competitive, curriculum-based running. More than 800 girls participate in these programs yearly. Girls on the Run combines training for a 3.1 mile running event with self-esteem enhancing, uplifting workouts. Their goals are to encourage positive emotional, social, mental, spiritual and physical development.
We support the mission statement of Girls on the Run: “To educate and prepare girls for a lifetime of self-respect and healthy living” by volunteering our time at their events, and through monetary donations whenever possible. We believe in the empowerment of women at any age and look for these young girls to be the dmc Team athletes of the future.
