On Friday, September 6, Abercrombie & Fitch hosted the 12th annual A&F Challenge philanthropic event at its Home Office campus in New Albany, Ohio. The event opened at 5:00PM (EDT) to registered participants bearing the official A&F Challenge wristband (alcohol wristbands made available with Photo ID for use in closing Party). The 20 mile bike tour and 5K walk/run initiated at 6:00PM and 6:15PM, respectively. There was also the great Kids Challenge Zone, for registered children ages 12 and under, which included a 25-foot rock-climbing wall and an inflatable obstacle course. The Silent Auction also went on encompassing a varied array of notable items also to raise money for charity. Live musical performances for the outdoor concert on Campus were given by California-based indie pop band, Youngblood Hawke, and Canadian electronic music band, Dragonette, with A&F's own music-genius, Ted Keyes, present keeping the Party pumping! Gourmet food and drinks were at the ready, of course, with cool fun, with great people, for an awesome cause... The A&F Challenge 2013 US$1+ million proceeds benefit the Wexner Medical Center of the higher-education research institution, Ohio State University. #RISETOTHECHALLENGE
