The Mariah Daye McCarthy Foundation
Mariah Daye McCarthy was tragically killed on October 28, 2007, by an underage driver who had been drinking. At the funeral services Mariah's father, Leo McCarthy, issued a challenge to the Butte community and especially to Butte's young people.
"Let's prevent drinking and destructive decisions from taking any more of Butte's most valuable asset - its youth."
The Butte community has taken the challenge to heart. Thousands of students, parents, and friends have accepted the challenge. The word has spread to other communities throughout Montana, and is now moving through the country.
Leo McCarthy of Mariah's Challenge selected as a 2012 CNN Hero
The Mariah Daye McCarthy Scholarship Foundation is dedicated to education and the prevention of underage drinking and driving in Montana. The non–profit organization provides scholarships to students who uphold the foundation's ideals and supports education, events and dialogue in communities that promote healthy, responsible lifestyles.
