Join me in my efforts to support The Breast Cancer Research Foundation!

On Aug. 18, I competed in the Day Lee Foods World Gyoza Eating Championship, and in a couple weeks, I'm heading to Reno for the John Ascuaga's Nugget World Rib Eating Championship-- both of those are Major League Eating competitive eating events.

Competitive eating is 90% mental. It's hard to push yourself past your physical limits -- you need something personal that drives you to do it. For me, that's helping people.

Hence, Gyozas for Good/Ribs for Research

So here's the deal: I've already donated a little bit. At the Gyoza Championship, I ate 131 gyoza and won $125. Not bad for a little girl. In Reno, I'm going to work hard -- pushing myself beyond my limits -- to try to place high in the rankings and win prize money there too. Then, if we raise $400 by Aug 28, I'll donate half my total prize money to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

Why the stipulation? Because I want you to have incentive to join me in this effort. I want you to put your money where your mouth is. I know that breast cancer has affected a lot of you -- I've seen your facebook statuses about where your purses are and what color your bras are, and I've seen you change your profile pictures to pink ribbons. That's all well and good, but now here's your chance to show that breast cancer research - finding a cure, treatments, and preventitive measures - is actually important to you. You can support those efforts and make sure they continue until all the questions are answered.

Thanks for reading. I hope you'll join me in this effort to end breast cancer and save others from the pain and suffering it causes.


P.S. If you're a fellow competitive eater who will be participating in the Rib Contest, become a member of the Ribs for Research fundraising team and help raise even more money for the cure! (Message me if you have questions about how to join as a member)
