Kasey Harvey is the 2016 ACE Hardware Foundation All-Star Ambassador!
In an assembly at Kasey’s school on Jan. 25, 2016, she was presented the award by coach and mentor, Clay Treska and in a video montage was congratulated by US Women’s soccer team goalkeeper, Hope Solo and MTV star, Johnny Bananas. Kasey was presented with a USA Women’s Soccer team shirt while Johnny’s video segment was actually filmed on stage at the MTV studios, New York, during the MTV Challenge Bloodlines reunion taping.
KUSI, CBS8 and FOX5 News stations were at school to witness the award ceremony and here is the segment from CBS8:
So; what is the ACE Hardware Foundation All-Star award?
“Being the Ace All-Star is a national honor that involves Kasey, a patient at Rady Children’s Hospital, sharing her journey battling Rhabdomyosarcoma cancer in 2014/15 to help Ace Hardware raise funds for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals across the country. Each year, Ace selects one patient to be their ambassador – so in 2016, Kasey’s face and story will be in over 4000 of Ace Hardware stores across the United States, inspiring customers to donate to their local CMN Hospital”
The foundation has raised over $71Million since conception that has gone to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals in the USA that includes San Diego Rady Children’s Hospital where Kasey was successfully treated in 2014/15 for cancer. San Diego Rady Children’s Hospital received a check today, signed by Kasey, in the amount of $10,000 for nominating Kasey for selection out of 170 applicants! Kasey will also appear at ACE Hardware convention’s in Las Vegas, Nevada and Orlando, Florida in the coming year.
It has been a goal of Team Kasey to give back to the community that was behind us during Kasey’s battle in 2014/15 and this platform allows Kasey to do so at a national level in 2016.
