Abel's 6N6 Challenge

IN SIX MONTHS, I... ran six marathons, built a haunted house, grew & shaved a beard, threw a concert, held a 7-minute plank, hosted a celebrity auction, sold shirts, ate 96 cookies in an hour, and raised over $15,000 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and an additional $5,000 for various local non-profits. I then served on the LLS's "Man & Woman of the Year" committee, where I helped create and coach "Run Team Kina" with musician Kina Grannis. Together, the participants of RTK raised an astounding $72,000 in ten weeks. Now I work in TV, spend my free-time drawing and writing, & would love to hear from you.
