NASCAR driver Kasey Kahne created the Kasey Kahne Foundation in 2005. Kasey was touring children’s hospitals and enjoyed watching the faces of children light up with a smile. And so began the Kasey Kahne Foundation as a way to do even more for those smiles by raising funds to donate to charities supporting chronically ill children and their families.

As the momentum of the Foundation continued to grow, Kasey was appointed in 2006 by President Bush to serve as a member of the President’s Council on Service & Civic Participation. Also in 2006, the Ronald McDonald House of Charlotte was announced to be built and was opened in 2010. Through fundraising events such as sprint car races in Washington State and Pennsylvania, a Drifting event in California and a concert in Georgia, the KKF was able to pledge a large donation which provided an outdoor playground at the House. 2010 was the first year of the Kasey Kahne Foundation “Five Kahne” 5K and in just 3 short years, nearly $125,000 has been raised. The Five Kahne continues to be a marquee event for the Foundation.
