My Legacy: The Story of Tom McHale
The My Legacy campaign was launched to recognize individuals who have made a lasting contribution to research and awareness of concussions and CTE, and encourages others to pitch in and create their own legacy. To read more about the campaign and learn how you can participate, click here.
Margy McHale and Marnie Abramson have hosted five Tom McHale Memorial fundraising events in support of the Concussion Legacy Foundation and in honor of Margy's brother and former NFL lineman Tom McHale. McHale died in 2008 at age 45 and his brain was donated to the Foundation and Boston University, where he was diagnosed with CTE. Margie and Marnie were presented at the 2015 Impact Awards with the Legacy Award, which is given to family members of a Legacy Donor who have honored their loved one's memory by supporting the Foundation's mission.
