Kenny, Mitchell, and Jake after the 100 meter race at the Special Olympics in 2011.http://www.triblocal.com/highland-park-highwood/community/stories/2011/05/team-keshet-wins-4-100m-relay-at-the-special-olympics-on-may-1-2011/index.html Mitchell Kasselman and Jake Pozin

In 2010 and 2011, we were Kenny's buddies at Keshet. Spending time with Kenny and his infectious smile was one of the most impactful experiences of our lives. Kenny brought great joy to us every time we saw him. For each activity that he participated in, his excitement and energy filled the room. With his sweet personality, he also led the way for his peers to succeed on their own. Each day, Kenny exemplified an uplifting attitude that we both strive to emulate in our lives today.

We are sending our love and well wishes to the kind and caring Rudin family. Kenny will be missed tremendously by ourselves and the rest of Keshet community.
