(WXYZ) - Do you have what it takes to be a coney dog eating champion? Detroit's famous American Coney Island is inviting you to find out during a charity eating contest that will take place this week.

Their fourth annual Coney Dog Eating Challenge takes place on Thursday. It's all part of an effort to raise money for the Detroit Police and Fire Charities.

Internationally known competitive eater Takeru Kobayashi will be at the event.
