Team McCarthy supports the fight against breast cancer because several of their team members have been directly affected by the disease. Breast cancer is a disease that doesn't just affect women, it affects everyone.
“Our mothers, grandmothers, sisters, wives, daughters and granddaughters are all at risk, so we collectively work together to try to reduce the chances of it affecting our families and friends.” says team captain Tad Lewis.
This year, Team McCarthy ranked as Top Fundraising Team #79 for their phenomenal fundraising efforts in raising $2,650 to support Komen Houston’s mission – to save lives and end breast cancer forever.
Their team walks in support of Sherry Lewis, a one year breast cancer survivor. She is a wife, mother of two, grandmother, and teacher of 20+ years.
On Race Day, they meet at a pre-designated location and take pictures. Some of them run in the 5K and some walk, but a good time is had by all.
