Chris McCormack set up The MaccaNow Foundation to commemorate his mother who passed away from breast cancer in 1999. Our initial intention is to raise $2,735,373 to provide assistance to families who are in active treatment for breast cancer in order to lessen the financial burdens and improve their quality of life. This initial goal is based on Chris' mother having been alive for 19,455 days which multiplied it by 140.6 (# of miles in an Ironman) = 2,735,373.
Donate today, Join the Team, or Start Your Fundraiser and compete for a coveted slot in the NYC Ironman!!
