Chef Will Artley from Pizzeria Orso has signed on as one of 15 chefs and mixologists participating in Fit for Hope, an intense 12-week fitness challenge to raise funds for the American Cancer Society.
The 12-week competition kicks off June 24. While dropping pounds, participants will be raising a minimum $2,500 during the 12 weeks. Happy hours and restaurant events will take place to help the chefs reach their fundraising goals. At the end of the 12-week Fit for Life challenge, contestants will be evaluated based on percentage of body weight lost. Bloomingdales will make-over the top three “losers” for the big reveal and announcement of the winner at the American Cancer Society’s Taste of Hope on Sept. 24.
