Miami Chefs Host Fundraising Events for Fit to Fight Challenge
While we're getting fatter taking advantage of Miami Spice, the chefs behind those meals are slimming down for a good cause. As part of the Fit to Fight challenge, 12 local toques have committed to lose weight while raising funds to benefit Live to Fight, a nonprofit that supports individuals with life-threatening illnesses. After their last weigh-in August 4, some are already down almost 20 pounds!
Fit to Fight via Facebook From Flywheel to Sobekick, Miami chefs are sweating it out all around town.
In addition to competing to drop the most weight, each chef is tasked with raising a minimum of $1,500. Many are hosting events and touting restaurant specials to help meet their goals and promote healthful living.
