A Letter from Michael Penwell - Director of Field Operations, Futbol Club of Cary

We are extremely excited to be working with our Futbol Club of Cary family to support The North Carolina Walk & Roll to Cure FSHD. The money raised will support programs and fund critical research that will directly affect patients living with FSH Muscular Dystrophy (FSHD) and their families.

Our daughters Alexa and Taylor were both diagnosed with FSHD during their teenage years. We have seen firsthand the life-altering effects of FSHD and the dedication of the FSH Society supported expert researchers who are working every day to find treatments and ultimately a cure.

Our family has been a part of FC Cary for more than a decade. Alexa and Taylor played in the same recreational program that we are proud to help run today. Over the years, we have met hundreds of truly amazing families and FC Cary has been a central part of our soccer world. At each step along the way, as players, coach, referee and now Director of Field Operations, the FC Cary community has provided a much-needed source of enjoyment and community around the game we love.

Please join our team today and walk with us or if you are unable to join in person, please consider making a donation to support our goal of finding a cure for FSHD.

Thank you for your support!

- Futbol Club of Cary and The Penwell Family

Special Event Team Shirt

To show our FC Cary team spirit, we have created an event-branded FC Cary team shirt. Those adults who join our team and plan to walk with us will receive an FC Cary shirt (while supply and sizes last). All FC Cary players who will be walking are encouraged to wear their FC Cary team shirt. Finally, for those siblings who may not play for FC Cary, we have a limited number of shirts from previous seasons that we are happy to supply.
