What is it?
Taking place on the stage outside Drake Stadium on Forest Ave, the 14th Annual EAT-A-THON is icare’s one-of-a-kind community nonprofit fundraiser, camouflaged as an eating competition, that benefits central Iowa and beyond. This year’s Fourteenth Annual, fueled by Jethro’s BBQ, presented by Dorsey & Whitney LLP, and hosted by the Drake Relays, has a goal of raising more than $100,000 for the following fourteen local Des Moines nonprofits.
The goal of each nonprofit is to raise $10,000 by eating, via their representative four-person team on April 25, as much of Jethro’s world famous Adam Emmenecker sandwich (a five pound, or 80 ounce, behemoth!) as they can in sixteen minutes; and securing, prior to the event, pledges of money from donors to turn their Emmenecker ounces into cold hard cash for their nonprofit.
Pledge for your charity of choice at https://icare.rallyup.com/ and see you outside Drake Stadium during the Saturday of Drake Relays!
