February is For the Kids at Casey’s General Store

This February, Casey’s General Store locations will come together to support Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals in their communities. During their 6th annual fundraising campaign, Casey’s customers will be asked if they’d like to round up to the nearest dollar for the kids and donate their change to their local children’s hospital.

Casey’s hopes to raise $1.2 million from their more than 2000 store locations in 15 midwestern states in 2019. Funds help kids just like Sam.

Sam, or #SuperSam as many have come to know him, was diagnosed with a cancerous brain tumor one week before his 4th birthday in March 2017. When the tumor was discovered, he had neurosurgery to remove 100% of the tumor. He also received 30 rounds of Proton Beam Radiation. Sam harvested his own stem cells to be later used during chemotherapy. He finally came home upon completion of treatment in October 2017. Although he is all finished with active treatments, he still makes trips to Iowa City every three months for MRIs and blood testing. His last MRI showed clear scans and he is enjoying life everyday as a healthy little 5-year-old boy. He will start school in the fall and is very excited!

Casey’s has raised more than $5.1 million since 2014 to help children at a time when they need it most.
