McKenna is a loyal supporter and wearer of her comfortable LAMO’s after a hard day at the track. McKenna also helps to spread awareness and raise funds for Unravel Pediatric Cancer, after sadly losing a 9 year old girl in her community (Elayna Sandeen) to pediatric cancer in 2018.
Unravel is a 501(c)3 nonprofit working to bridge the gap in funding for pediatric cancer research. With the help of warrior families and their communities, Unravel raises awareness of the need for this research and the funds to support it. Unlike the typical grant funding model, Unravel gives unrestricted funds to innovative pediatric cancer researchers, which removes barriers and accelerates the development of more effective and less toxic treatments for children with cancer. https://unravelpediatriccancer.org
