Introducing the Kevin Harney Courage Award!

Who is Kevin Harney?

Kevin was the driving founder of CFK. Kevin saw a growing need to provide financial assistance to families in our communities, struggling to provide for their families, while caring for their sick or injured child. He knew that something needed to be done. Through his random acts of kindness, Kevin was slowly starting to the change the lives of others, however he thirsted to assist more families and that is how CFK was born in 2005. Through the years, Kevin has stood by CFK to make sure that we were able to assist every family that met the criteria set forth in CFK’s mission statement. Through Kevin’s focus and that of the Board of Directors, CFK has encountered over 600 Long Island families that we have been able to financially assist. All of these families have become part of the “CFK family”, but there have been a few that have stood out to us that show courage and strength in unbelievable ways, while making a difference in a child’s life. We are honored to recognize them with this special award. In 2019, Kevin was diagnosed with MSA – Multiple System Atrophy. Kevin has shown courage, strength, and determination every day with this disabling disorder and we could not think of a better name to put on this award.
