NASCAR driver Kasey Kahne visited a McDonald’s in Yelm, Washington, yesterday to personally congratulate and thank the restaurant crew members for their outstanding efforts during World Children’s Day 2008 – selling the most paper Hands in the country through the “Give A Hand” fundraiser.

Kasey Kahne supports Ronald McDonald House

World Children’s Day at McDonald’s is the Company’s largest annual fundraiser to benefit Ronald McDonald House Charities and other children’s charities worldwide. The 2008 campaign raised more than $8 million dollars to help support the Charity’s three core programs, including the Ronald McDonald House, Ronald McDonald Family Room and Ronald McDonald Care Mobile; since its inception in 2001, the campaign has raised more than $132 million for RMHC.

Kahne, a Seattle-area native and long-time supporter of RMHC, has donated $500,000 to the Charity to date in support of helping families with seriously ill children.

“I have seen first-hand what the Ronald McDonald House does and how they provide a home away from home for people that have a child in the hospital and need a helping hand,” said Kahne. “I am happy to support Ronald McDonald House Charities.”

In March, Kahne will team up with multi-platinum country music star Dierks Bentley to host the Sound Check 9 concert, a fundraiser for his Kasey Kahne Foundation. A performance by Dierks will follow an on-stage Q&A with Kasey. More info about the event can be found here.
