DANBURY, CT – The Hat Tricks are partnering with Cultec Inc. this season and its President Bob DiTullio, who is fighting for a special cause.

Cultec Inc. is a family-run business that manufactures plastic drainage products for the construction industry.

Cultec Inc. manufactures its own chambers that help in stormwater management.

DiTullio is also involved deeply in the community. This year, he will be running in the New York City marathon on behalf of the National Organization for Rare Disorders (NORD).

“I am grateful to have the opportunity to be running in the NYC marathon this year,” said DiTullio.

His goal is to raise awareness for Vanishing White Matter (VWM) and an 11-year-old boy living with the rare disease, Sam Buck.

“My hope is to raise money in order to fund the necessary research that will stop the progression of this disease,” DiTullio said.

VWM is a rare disease that affects the nervous system and can lead to a loss of motor skills, muscle coordination and involuntary movements.
