North Pole Arctic Expedition
It’s the ultimate adventure for Ken Casey to reach the 90, the North Pole via dog sled and skis.
The constant battle of the cold (-30 degrees), building of ice bridges to go over leads, dealing with rugged ice terrain resulting from the effects of pressure ridges and then there are those white out conditions.
At times making no headway at all. If fact going backward. An icy trek that two teammates will not be able to complete … Acting as cameraman, Ken interviews and narrates the events as it happens.
(stay tuned … this project is next to be released)
Over the years Ken Casey has supported a number of World’s Children projects and sponsored many health care students to get them on their way to becoming self sufficient through education.
It provides a way out from abuse, poverty and servitude. Creating a quality of life never before experienced.
It’s gratifying that more and more donors are sponsoring these children of need.

Burt Home for Children
It was a chance meeting with Mary Burt for Ken Casey that led to his support of this very much needed abused children center in San Francisco.
Ken provided a better environment for them (from new beds, clothing and even building maintenance).
To top it all off creating an annual Christmas treat for the children, when he went on the road as Santa Ken with a complete cast of characters to stop by for a ‘Santa is Coming’ play and gift giving event.
(this was the beginnings of the famous Ken’s Christmas House)
White Water Rafting on the Bashkaus River in Siberia Russia
Ken Casey and Project RAFT battles the unforgiving never explored at the time class 5 white waters of the Russian Bashkaus River in Siberia with fellow Russian rafters.
Tackling this dangerous river created a new comradeship of teamwork with perhaps a surprising outcome …
It may have been another nudge for the beginning of U.S. and Russian relation improvement prior to the Perestroika movement.
