We all want to help fight horrible diseases, but a lot of us have no business being in a marathon that doesn't involve Simpsons episodes. Well, there's finally a way to pitch in without running a 5K, and -- thankfully! -- it involves burritos.
Meet Joe Gallo, a revolutionary philanthropist who just helped raise over $3,000 for his cancer-stricken friend by eating 100 Chipotle burritos over 100 days. When Gallo heard his Pi Kappa Alpha frat brother Bret Grund had been diagnosed with stage IV glioma (a type of brain tumor), he wanted to help cover Grund's medical bills. To raise awareness for the GoFundMe page Grund's friends set up, he decided to eat a Chipotle burrito every day for 100 days, documenting the results on Instagram with #100daysforgrundfund. Day 100 hit late last week at a Manhattan fundraiser, and the "GrundFund" tally now stands at $3,413.
