Abel's 6N6 Challenge

IN A SPAN OF SIX MONTHS, I ran six marathons, built a haunted house, grew & shaved an epic beard, threw a concert, held a 7-minute plank, hosted a celebrity auction, sold t-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 comedy, spend my free-time drawing and writing, and would love to hear from you.

Saturday’s Independence Weekend Southern Tornadoes Benefit BBQ was a really outstanding event.  Scores of friends and neighbors came out to the Echo Country Outpost to bask in good music, share in the good cheer, and help raise $725 for the Tuscaloosa School Fund!

A very special thanks to Roxy and Alyssa (above) and the Siblings Chew (below), whose hard work and great love for the people of Alabama made this event possible.  

Also, my undying gratitude to Chris and Erica, of the Echo Country Outpost, for hosting this event, and to all the talented musicians who participated.
