THE STORY:

In honor of my Bar Mitzvah and my brother, Ross, I am raising money for the United Mitochondrial Disease Foundation (UMDF)  by holding a New Food Challenge: Try It...For a Cure! For all of you who know me, you know I will never try any new foods. If it's not bagel & cream cheese, I say no! In the spirit of the Ice Bucket Challenge, I decided to challenge myself with something really tough for me...but it's worth it for my brother. I would do anything for him!

So, this is how it works:

You donate on this website and it goes directly to UMDF. In the comment section please include what food you want me to try. For ideas of foods that my parents really want me to try, see the picture of my BARF MENU on this website. Of course, you are welcome to suggest your own, within reason! I will commit to proving that I ate your food with a video which I'll send you of me eating it. And, If I don't barf, my parents will throw in an extra $5 to each donation to support the cause.

So, Bring it on... I'm ready for the challenge and ready to find a cure for my bro!

Thanks for supporting me and my charity!!!

Adam Arkin
