AUBURN, AL (WTVM) - A father and son are taking what some would consider extreme measures to raise money for a worthy cause.

Since Monday Brad Hooks and his 9-year-old son Banjo have called a foam board structure home.

The two are choosing to brave the elements, live, and sleep a yurt as a way to raise money for the Lee County American Cancer Society Relay for Life until they reach their goal of $5,400 they will stay in the yurt.

For the Hooks family it’s their personal connection to the disease that's driving them to do whatever it takes to support this cancer-ending initiative despite the current discomfort.

The yurt is located on the campus of Ogletree Elementary where Brad works and Banjo goes to school. Their efforts are also being used as a tool to show students the importance of giving back.
