KILLINGTON - Everybody can be a winner when the Biggest Loser comes to town for a fundraising event in July.
July 28, the popular NBC program is bringing its “Get Fit, Get Ready” RunWalk to Killington Resort’s K-1 Lodge for a 5-kilometer and 15-kilometer events, as well as a 1-mile kids’ race. Season five contestants Dan and Jackie Evans were at the Killington Grand Resort Hotel on Monday to make the announcement.
“The thing that excites us about the Biggest Loser is how it’s changing people’s lives,” said Dan Evans, who weighed 310 pounds at 19 years of age and who- with his mother, Jackie- lost a combined 225 pounds.
“I went on the show at 50. At 52, I ran my first half marathon,” said Jackie Evans.
The event will raise money for the Kids Fit Foundation, which promotes healthy habits as it fights childhood obesity.
