Motivational Talk by Biggest Loser Contestant Tara Costa
The popular former contestant on the weight loss reality show, who lost 155 pounds during the 18 weeks she spent on The Biggest Loser campus, has since completed several Sprint, Olympic and Half-Iron distance triathlons, including the 2011 Ironman World Championship in Kona, HI. When invited to participate in the Sooke event, Costa jumped at the chance to experience Vancouver Island's west coast as a destination race participant!
Costa will speak after the Kid's Run at 10:30am at John Phillips Memorial Park. Costa continues to inspire others on their own weight-loss journey by leading by example and through her non-profit organization, the Inspire Change Foundation.
