Support Michael McCabe’s Fundraiser!
For the past 35 years or so I have been involved with helping children. I am particularly interested in those kids who find themselves in adverse situations not of their own doing. I have been part of many, many fundraisers and have sat on numerous boards whose mission is to help kids.
For the past 18 years I have served on the Executive Board of the Westfield Boys and Girls Club. In that time our budget has quadrupled and maintained an 85 percent spending on kids programming. That is an amazing statistic. I have run the Mass Dash Relay 3 times as a member of Sophia’s Cancer Crushers and the 6 of us raised over $100,000 for the Jimmy Fund.
I am a Charter Member of the Westfield Centennial Lions Clubs. Our new project is to create a Sensory Park for children with Autism by 2022.
I have been and still am a volunteer swim coach for the Westfield High School Bombers since 2012. That is a 5 days a week program during the swim season.
In my spare time I am an adjunct faculty member at Westfield State University where I have been teaching kids for the past two decades.
My full time job is as a police officer in the City of Westfield. I am currently serving the City as its senior captain (the number 2 guy:). I recently applied for and was awarded a $344,000 grant for school safety improvements though security systems and team approaches to violence.
I have a beautiful wife Jennipher and we have been married for 30 years this May. An impressive feat for a cop:). She gave me a daughter, Kate who is now 22 and our greatest achievement.
I short, I root for the underdog who through no fault of their own have been dealt a lousy hand. Kids with cancer is the epitome of a lousy hand. I am not a rich man so I donate my time, talent and energy to help kids. If it means I have to run 26.2 miles then so be it.
