Country music radio station KKBQ-FM/Houston morning show host Kevin Kline will attempt a 300-mile run in Alaska’s deadly Arctic Circle to raise money for pediatric cancer patients at Texas Children’s Hospital, on behalf of the non-profit he founded in 2006, The Snowdrop Foundation.
On November 16, 2019, eight days before his 50th birthday, Kline, an ultra-runner, will set out to become the first recorded person in history to run the northernmost 300 miles of The Dalton Highway (The Dalton) in winter. He will run with a backpack filled with names and pictures of 1,750 pediatric cancer patients, weighing over seven pounds.
“Words can’t describe how proud I am of Kevin and the endeavor he’s undertaking,” said Johnny Chiang, Director of Operations for Cox Media Group Houston. “This is beyond doing good in your community, which we as broadcasters have pledged to do. This is humanity at its best.”
