Kate Phalon McCarthy Memorial Fund is a nonprofit charitable organization founded to honor the life of Kate Phalon McCarthy, a beautiful, kind and beloved 15-year-old girl from Weymouth, Massachusetts. Kate died on April 9, 2016 in a car accident. Kate was a sophomore at Archbishop Williams High School in Braintree, where she played varsity volleyball, lacrosse, and ran track. She was also an honor roll student and member of the school chorus.
Kate was a ray of sunshine and a friend to everyone. She had an infectious laugh and a smile that would light up a room. She loved the beach and spending time at her family’s summer home on Cape Cod.
She is missed dearly by her mother, Nancy, father, Bob, and brothers, Connor and Liam, along with her grandparents and many cousins, aunts, uncles and friends. We want to keep her memory alive.
The Kate Phalon McCarthy Memorial Fund has been created to reflect the way Kate lived: loving, kind, caring and generous. The mission of the fund is to support our community through educational and athletic scholarships and programs, as well as causes focused on the well-being and care of veterans and children.
