YAK Releases Second Hot Ones Teaser
The Young Agents Committee hopes to encourage more donations for Jacob Legleiter with the release of the second Hot Ones teaser.
Choriocarcinoma is very rare. Patients require a unique, aggressive treatment to improve their chance of survival. Testicular germ cell tumors represent the most common malignancy among young men. While five-year overall survival and cure for this population is greater than 95%, choriocarcinoma is an aggressive subtype of this disease with a far worse prognosis; five-year survival for choriocarcinoma is less than 80%
Unfortunately, the peak occurrence in males is 20-29 years old. Jacob Legleiter is 20-years old.
The Young Agents Committee believes that it is the independent agents' community's responsibility to support those within the community. Mike Legleiter, Jacob's father, is with Rain & Hail and is not only a member of the community but also a KAIA Industry Partner.
This year, an idea was hatched by the Young Agents Committee’s National Liaison, Brock Elliott of Elliott Group in Louisburg, Kansas., to create a Hot Ones Challenge. Bryce Hundley of Hundley Insurance Services, and Josh Goodman, KAIA, agreed to participate in the challenge. Just as in the original YouTube sensation, the participants conduct an interview over ten increasingly spicy chicken wings. They began with Hot Ones Classic sauce with a rating of 1,800 Scoville units and ended with a struggle to finish The Last Dab XXX with a Scoville rating of two million units. Only one participant did not accept the final Dab challenge.
Hundley added, “To the principals, company reps, producers, marketing underwriters, let’s show Mike and his family how much we support them. Your donations go straight to the family, and you get to see us humiliate ourselves. We may even accept challenges!”
Short clips will be released through KAIA’s website and its Facebook and LinkedIn pages. The final cut will only be released once the Committee has reached its $4,000 fundraising goal. The campaign runs from August 10, 2021, to September 10, 2021. Donations can be made through KAIA’s website at kaia.com/yak.
