Help Chef Victor Albisu Fight Cancer (and get Fit for Hope)
Del Campo’s Victor Albisu is joining with the American Cancer Society and 15 other Washington, D.C. chefs and mixologists for the inaugural Fit for Hope weight loss challenge, taking place June 24 – September 24. This 12-week challenge will have Victor Albisu working with local trainer Jason Yoo in order to try to beat out the other chefs, who will all be evaluated based on the percentage of body weight lost. The top three “losers” will win a makeover from Bloomingdales for the big reveal at the culmination event, Taste of Hope, held September 24 at the Carnegie Library.
Taste of Hope is the American Cancer Society’s annual signature culinary, wine and spirits event. It will be the 100th birthday of Taste of Hope and its first time in Washington D.C., where the winner will be announced.
Each chef must raise a minimum of $2,500, with all proceeds benefiting the American Cancer Society in the fight to eliminate cancer as a major health problem.
