Kevin says …

“Excited to announce my partnership with @capannariicecream! I grew up going to this ice cream store in Mount Prospect, IL and still to this day believe they have the best ice cream around!”

Caps says …

“We are dear friends of Kevin and his whole family. McDowell’s were our neighbors here in Mount Prospect back in the early 90’s. We have watched Kevin grow up to be the athlete he is today – hardworking, dedicated and determined. It’s our goal, and an honor, to support him along the way.”

About Kevin

Ranked the No. 1 junior triathlete in the U.S. in 2010, Kevin hit the biggest hurdle in his life when he was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma in 2011. After an intense chemotherapy course, Kevin returned to his triathlon training with a goal to be on the U.S. Olympic Team. Kevin is currently ranked #23 in the World, most recently capturing the bronze medal at Sarasota’s World Cup in October.
