  • How a trip to Africa changed the Mustang cross country coach's life

    BY JENNI CARLSON | Published: Wed, Sep 16, 2015

    BETHANY — Mike McGarry wonders occasionally about what the little boy would have been like. If he would've been tall or short. If he would've liked to play outside or stay indoors. If he would've been shy or outgoing. If only McGarry could've saved him. Five years have passed since the Mustang High cross country coach went on a mission trip to Swaziland. Memories of an infant boy in a faraway African land remain today. McGarry knew the baby wouldn't survive, but in that moment, he knew he couldn't do anything to help either. Saturday is a chance to change that. McGarry is one of the organizers of the Swazi 5K, an event hosted by Bethany First Church of the Nazarene and Southern Nazarene.
