Additionally, DRV PNK Stadium is proud to welcome back high school senior Alexandra Herrera and the Lourdes Singers from Our Lady of Lourdes Academy to the pitch to get KCC Night underway by singing the national anthem. Herrera performed the anthem last year in the Club's 2022 Kick Childhood Cancer Night as a pediatric cancer patient undergoing treatment for a recurrence of rhabdomyosarcoma. This year, after over a year of intense treatment, Herrera will walk onto the field as a pediatric cancer survivor!
