The next time you eat a Chipotle burrito, it won’t mean as much as when Joe Gallo eats his next one.

Gallo, a recent graduate of Bowling Green State University, has been eating one Chipotle burrito each day for the past three months. That’s 82 days to be exact. His goal is to eat 100 burritos, but this isn’t your typical fraternity dare, it’s a challenge for charity.

Gallo set off on his audacious goal, on May 21, 2014, in honor of one of his Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity brothers, Bret Grund, who was recently diagnosed with stage four Giloma or, as it’s more commonly know, brain cancer.

Gallo told Elite Daily the reason he started out on 100 days of Chipotle, “it started out as a joke ripping on 100 days of happiness and as bet between a few buddies.

Within the first few days of the challenge I had received news that my fraternity brother, Bret was diagnosed with stage four glioma, My buddies created a go fundpage to help raise money for his medical bills,” he said.

Gallo and his fraternity saw the opportunity to turn his joke into an actual cause, and it’s been effective.

Joe’s small effort has blossomed into a full-blown movement. In partnership with “Grundraisers,” located in Cleveland, Ohio, Gallo and his brothers have raised over $10,000.

The goal is to raise another $10,000 for Grund and his family, so they can offset the hefty price tag of medical bills through a GoFundMe campaign.

It’s called #100daysforgrundfund and Joe has been keeping a running log of his journey through Instagram photos and videos each day.

After you check it out, make sure to help spread the work of Joe’s GoFundMe page and donate to help a brother in need.
