FLYING PIG MARATHON WELCOMES ‘BIGGEST LOSER’
Ali Vincent invites participants to walk the Pig with her!

Ali VincentCINCINNATI (March 19, 2009) -- The 11th annual Cincinnati Flying Pig Marathon will welcome Ali Vincent, the first female winner of NBC’s “The Biggest Loser,” and her mother, as they walk the Flying Pig Half Marathon presented by PNC on Sunday, May 3.

Vincent is coming to Cincinnati as part of Prevention Magazine’s “Team Prevention Walk It!,” promoting walking as an exercise option for many Americans. The program has motivated thousands of walkers, and Ali is inviting walkers to join her during her 13.1 mile walk at the Flying Pig.

“We are thrilled to have Ali Vincent and Prevention Magazine choose the Flying Pig to promote walking as a healthy activity,” said Iris Simpson-Bush, Marathon executive director. “We encourage walkers in all our divisions, and what better way for Ali to celebrate the first year of her new healthy lifestyle than by walking the Pig.”

“I am excited, honored, and privileged to walk alongside other women just like me,” said Vincent. “I am looking forward to each step and sharing this journey with every one of my fellow Team Prevention members.”
