EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU)- An event bearing the name of a popular NBC Show is coming to the Chippewa Valley this fall.
On Thursday, the Eau Claire Sports Commission and the Eau Claire Children's Theater announced they will host a Biggest Loser Run/Walk in October.
As a part of the event, Biggest Loser alumi, Dan and Jackie Evans from season 5, will be in attendance. Lisa Rambo from season 14 will also participate. She was at the announcement Thursday.
Rambo says a Biggest Loser Run/Walk was a part of one of the challenges on her season of the show, and it was a big turning point for her.
"We had never run a 5k and we all crossed that finish line and it was huge. It was one of the first times where I went 'I can actually do this'. So this creates an opportunity for everyone else to come out and run and do the best you can with what you've got," says Rambo.
The Run/Walk will benefit the Eau Claire Children's Theater.
