Already, this year, “Team Goodwill” has 70 athletes and coaches committed to being part of the special 20th Anniversary Celebration of the Flying Pig Marathon and participating in the Pigabilities event. The formal five week training program will help to enrich the athletes’ experience and support their commitment to being active and making healthy life choices.
