McCarthy Strong is an organization started by the McCarthy Family in Hampton, NH in order to raise money to help pancreatic cancer research in collaboration with the Dana-Farber Cancer Center & the Jimmy Fund. The organization is so named in honor of son, brother, twin, husband, father, and uncle – Stephen McCarthy – who passed away suddenly from pancreatic cancer in 2015.
We host a yearly 5K Walk + Run where proceeds are donated to the Dana-Farber Cancer Center in support of their efforts to find a cure for pancreatic cancer. The annual event includes the walk, food, drawings for prizes, live music, and more.
We’re happy to have raised nearly $50,000 for our
3rd Annual McCarthy Strong 5K Walk + Run in 2017.
We will begin online registration for 2018 this winter.
Start making your teams and let’s keep this fight strong against pancreatic cancer!
We walk for those fighting. We walk for those who have passed. We walk for a cancer free future! Join us.
