Buaidh no bas is Gaelic for Conquer or Die. It is embedded in the McDowell family crest, and a call to action for the Maxmead Family. Our community pulls together to support each other as we conquer each goal.
Everyone's goals are different, and the Maxmead family respects that. In fact, we are inspired by the variety and diversity or accomplishments.
The family that plays together, stays together. We feel community, and involvement is a key factor to long term success and endurance. Together, we enjoy adventures from an inspired hike, to a competition team, we try it all.
