Gina Martin is the founder and director of The Bob and Diane Fund, which honors her parents, Bob and Diane Martin. The couple were high school sweethearts married for 49-and-a-half years. In 2006, at the age of 65, Diane was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s, and she passed away five years later. Bob, her husband, loyal partner, and devoted caregiver, died just three months later. Gina is a former managing account executive, International Editorial Sales, for National Geographic Creative.
