As captain of the Valley Girls & Guys! 3-Day Team, McDonough has raised more than $1.4 million to raise awareness and fund research for breast cancer for Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Starting with a team of four walkers in 2007, McDonough has grown the team to more than 168 walkers and become the number-one fundraising team in the U.S. The 3-Day Team gives cancer survivors a place to feel at home and as part of a second family while taking their next step into surviving and celebrating life. Because of McDonough’s passion and commitment, 75 percent of her walkers return each year.
