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.
