Adam Akida of Dundas, Minn., is the lucky winner of the 2013 QuitCash Challenge. Adam successfully quit smoking for the entire month of April, and his name was drawn from a pool of more than 3,600 entrants to receive the grand prize of $5,000.
Adam started smoking in high school and got a lot of support from his mother, a nurse, while he was quitting. He plans to put some of his winnings toward the college courses he’s taking. He is also working to organize events for young people in the Dundas area, so it will be easier for them to find things to do other than smoking and other negative activities.
Congrats, Adam! More about the contest can be found at www.quitcash.com.
