THE STORY:

TESA TOTENGCO wrote -

In 2010, our friend Barry McCool ran the Shelter Island 10K to raise funds for his educational/humanitarian children's mission to India and Tanzania. In 2013, Barry was diagnosed with Glioblastoma, the deadliest form of brain cancer to afflict humans. In one month, he passed away. The team is dedicating this run in his memory.

Last June 2015, the Team ran the NY Shelter Island Run and raised $2.2K for the Barry McCool Award.  This year, our goal of $5K will benefit the Barry McCool Award (in his hometown of Donegal, Ireland) and Kalipay Negrense Foundation (his adopted hometown in the Philippines).

The Barry McCool Award for modern European languages was set up to recognise excellence in languages among final year students at Barry's own secondary (high) school - St Columba's College in Donegal, Ireland. The school was very important to Barry, he achieved excellent academic results and he is remembered fondly among the staff. Barry studied French and Spanish at the school, and went on to study German at university, picking up Dutch and Italian along the way in his career and travels. His skills in languages reflected his attitude to life - work hard at what you are good at and don’t stop learning new things.  The award consists of a modest travel bursary, a personal memento, and a perpetual trophy designed by Barry's brother Alan .

Kalipay Negrense Foundation, Inc, is a non-profit foundation working for the causes of disadvantaged children - the homeless, physically and sexually abused, malnourished, out of school and special children. The Kalipay Negrense Foundation, Inc. hopes to break the cycle of hopelessness in the children’s lives by introducing them to education, providing shelter, health care and counseling.
