Brendan McCarthy was a special education teacher at Horseheads High School. He coached swimming for the Horseheads Thrashers until 2010, when he resigned to spend more time with his family. In August of 2013, Brendan was diagnosed with ALS. Brendan fought hard but ultimately lost his battle in June of 2015. 

For over 3 years, the Horseheads community (along with countless family and friends) have joined together to support Team McCarthy. We are continuing that support by honoring Brendan's love of running, racing, and recreation by hosting a 5k run/walk and 1 mile fun run at Thorne St. Park in Horseheads, NY on December 4th, 2016
