NASCAR driver Kasey Kahne joined an eclectic yet distinguished group of leaders in the Find Your Favorite Heroes campaign. The Produce Mom’s national, in-school initiative promotes healthy eating habits through role models.
The campaign features 18 heroes including George Hill from the Indianapolis Pacers, WNBA Indiana Fever player Tamika Catchings, Olympic Gold Medal Diver David Boudia and more.

“Kasey Kahne has long been an asset to ‘team apple’ through his retail promotion partnership with (Sage Fruit),” Wendy Brannen, U.S. Apple Association director of consumer health and public relations, said in a news release.
