Thousands gather for Yuma Catholic Rib Cook-Off to aid leukemia research

Posted:

YUMA, Ariz. (13 On Your Side) - More than 30 teams showed up to Yuma Catholic's annual Rachel Determan Rib Cook-Off, ready to grill and show off their best ribs.

This year, "the Chicharones" took home the grand prize of $1,000 and the cup. 

The group of friends (Robert Orta, Israel Valencia, Richard Valencia, Ronnie Rutherford and Tony Ford) say they plan to donate a percentage of their winnings to the Rachel Determan foundation to aid research to cure leukemia.

Rachel Determan was a 13-year-old Yuma teen who lost her brave battle against leukemia several years ago.
