Marty Turco, NHL All-Star Goalie and former Dallas Stars #35

Marty Turco spent the first nine of his 11 NHL seasons as the starting goaltender for the Dallas Stars and currently holds the franchise record for regular season games played, wins, and shutouts. In 2016, the C5 Youth Foundation of Texas named C5 board member and former NHL All-Star Goalie Marty Turco as their new president.

Marty Turco is a three-time All Star and won the Dallas Stars community service award six of the nine seasons he was with the team. Turco also earned the Eighth Annual NHL Foundation Player Award in 2006 for his charitable impact and contributions. Since retirement, Turco has turned his attention to various business ventures and continues his charitable work with C5 Youth Foundation of Texas.

C5 Youth Foundation begun in 1999 by former Coca-Cola CEO John Alm, and has expanded through the years to empower at-risk youth to graduate from high school and go on to college and become contributing members of society. C5 is a five-year intensive leadership program located in four major regions for 8th through 12th graders, including Southern California (where it first started), New England, Georgia, and Texas. Today each of those organizations are independent entities and continue to offer tremendous support and resources to at-risk and in-need youth.

Marty and his wife Kelly have always been actively involved in the community to help children. Having young children of their own, combined with their shared backgrounds in education studies, made children’s education and the C5 Youth Foundation a natural fit for the couple. Marty aims to build stronger business relationships, and provide more awareness about C5 in order to help the program grow.
