Welcome to Day 20 of our daily e-mail blasts to help you prepare for the 10th annual Cincinnati Flying Pig Marathon events.
Dr. Louann Cummings has a special reason to run:
"It was four years ago that I had a third of my lung removed after discovering that I had lung cancer (ironically, a marathon training foot injury led to my serendipitous diagnosis). The FP is going to be my seventh half marathon since my surgery and chemo. My running group, my saviors and greatest cheerleaders, will be joining me in Cinncinati to raise funds for Lungevity. Our shirts will proudly display LUNGSTRONG while we run to help others breathe. Look for us and take a big breath and squeal!"
Best of luck, we'll look for you on the course! What is your Pig story? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
along with your contact information.
Companies around the Tri-State still have time to join the "Pig" in celebrating its 10th anniversary year and raise money for charity. The Flying Pig Marathon has created a "CEO Challenge" presented by the Cincinnati Business Courier, to see who truly is 'Boss Hog' among Greater Cincinnati corporations. Companies need only to coordinate a relay team made up of four employees (CEOs are welcome, but not mandatory) to run the Marathon. Prizes and a traveling trophy will be given to the company's team who has the fastest time, and who raises the most money for charity.
"Spirit of the Marathon"
If you'll be downtown Friday night, May 2nd, plan to be at Fountain Square for the viewing of the film, "Spirit of the Marathon" at 9:00 PM. We know that many people didn't get to see the first showing on February 21 because of snow. The Flying Pig Marathon is happy to show the film downtown during Pig weekend!
The Greening 'o the Pig
When you're at the Flying Pig Health & Fitness Expo presented by National City, be sure to visit the Duke Energy booth in our 'green' area. There you'll see all kinds of conservation ideas, plus you'll see first-hand just how much energy it takes to get the 'pig' going! It's just another reminder of how the "Pig" is going green.
