Crossroads Fitness Court Named in Honor of McCarthy Family Planned Gift
October 23rd, 2014
After their beloved son lost his battle with addiction at 45, Bryan McCarthy’s parents, Denis and Linda McCarthy, wanted to find a unique way to memorialize him while helping others sustain their recovery. Because Bryan, a very accomplished Marketing Executive living and working in Boulder, CO, loved outdoor sports – particularly cycling, skiing, and golf – the new fitness court at Crossroads seemed like the perfect place to combine the memory of his passion for athletics and his lifelong, big-hearted journey to help others.
Sadly, despite his best efforts in several rehabs and detoxifications, his battle with the disease of alcoholism severely broke his prior self-confidence and subsequent relapses negatively affected his health and he passed away in 2013. During visits with Denis and Linda, Bryan often commented that there were not enough facilities for attendees to exercise and have fun. It was for this reason that the McCarthy’s felt supporting Crossroads Fitness Court Named in Honor of McCarthy Family Planned Gift Crossroads and naming the new Fitness Court in Bryan’s name made great sense.
David Lawrence Center is humbled to help further Bryan’s memory in this way so his family and friends have a special way to remember and cherish him.
“I’m proud of Bryan for how he cared for other people. He was truly one-of-a-kind.”
– DENIS Mc Carthy
