CK Story


Cam Kranich was a 2019 graduate from Homestead High School in Mequon, WI. Throughout his youth and high school, hockey was a big part of Cam's life. Cam also loved baseball, fishing, music and cars.


Cam was inherently kind, very generous with his heart, and loved by all. He always gave his support and unconditional encouragement to all those around him. Cam saw himself as a "Firefly".  His life mission was to illuminate other people's lives with his light and kindness. Cam is an inspiration to all who knew him.


After graduation, he attended the University of Iowa, with dreams to study medicine and to continue to help people. Sadly, Cam died unexpectedly on October 12, 2019, his freshman year at Iowa. 

On January "16", 2020, friends and family of Cam Kranich started the CK Choose Kindness Foundation with the goal of continuing Cam's efforts and honoring his memory.
