Team Judson’s Legacy, led by the boy’s parents, Drake and Christina Levasheff of Costa Mesa, Calif., won $140,000 on the show, which aired last week on GSN, formerly the Game Show Network. Research done at the lab, to be named in honor of Judson Levasheff, will help youngsters with Krabbe and other leukodystrophies.
Judson died in 2007, just short of his third birthday, of the same degenerative disease that took the life of Hunter Kelly, son of Buffalo Bills Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly and his wife, Jill.
“This is such a great victory for the Levasheffs and Hunter’s Hope,” Kelly said. “Ever since I met Christina and Drake, they have worked tirelessly to share their son Judson’s story, in hopes that other children do not have to suffer like Jud. Jill and I are honored to have them as part of our Hunter’s Hope family.”
