TEAM JUDSON'S LEGACY

Charity: Hunter's Hope, an organization that, in partnership with Judson's Legacy, raises awareness and funds research for Krabbe Disease, an illness that Cristina and Drake's firstborn son battled

Team Members: Drake Levasheff (college administrator); Christina Levasheff (author); Dean Bobar (pastoral assistant). This highly spirited team consists of married couple Drake and Christina and their dear friend Dean who they met during a very life changing time. They have been rock solid friends ever since, and share a very unique and special bond.

THE FOOD FIGHTERS

Hometown: Sacramento, CA

Charity: Foodlink Inc., an organization that feeds the hungry in Sacramento

Team Members: Stephen Law (student); Michael Chen (assistant industrial hygienist); Ed Law (business owner). These three call themselves "the Jeremy Lins of Bible trivia." Ed, who owns a window cleaning business, has always taught his six kids to lead a Christian life. His son Stephen is a high school sophomore who is passionate about knowing God. Michael is Stephen's youth pastor and fellow competitor in bizarre eating contests.

THE BOYS NEXT DOOR

Hometown: Pasadena, CA

Charity: Oasis USA, an organization dedicated to ending human trafficking

Team Members: Drew Vinson (student); Sam Altis (student); Matthew Blanton (student). These buddies and neighbors may like to joke around, but when it comes to their weekly trivia events, they are serious competitors. Each grew up as a Christian, but didn't come to the full realization of his faith until adulthood.
