Ohio Valley Goodwill was pleased to be featured as the Title Sponsor and a key speaker at the formal public launch of PigAbilities 2023. Hosted by Paycor, a major sponsor of the Cincinnati Flying Pig Marathon, the kick-off event was held in partnership with Pig Works, the parent organization of the Marathon, to engage the larger Greater Cincinnati community in supporting PigAbilities 2023. PigAbilities is an event within the Cincinnati Flying Pig Marathon which is designed to be fully accessible and welcoming to athletes of all abilities. Ohio Valley Goodwill has been the proud Title Sponsor for the past seven years.
More than 25 different agencies, families and friends participated in the PigAbilities public launch event. After a brief breakfast and welcome, the Pig Works team shared information related to the history of PigAbilities, the specifics related to the 2023 event, fundraising opportunities, a video as well as questions and answers. The goal for PigAbilities this year is the involvement of at least 1000 athletes. 2023 marks the 25th anniversary of the Cincinnati Flying Pig Marathon so there are many festivities and celebrations planned for this year’s Marathon weekend.
Goodwill Marketing Director, Sharon Hannon, talked about the history of PigAbilities and Goodwill’s involvement and thanked Paycor and Pig Works as well as all of the organization’s partners for their support of PigAbilities. The training meet-up events being hosted by Hamilton County Developmental Disabilities Services and Coordinator, Ann Myres, were also promoted as an opportunity for athletes to train together and meet new people.
Ohio Valley Goodwill is grateful to Paycor and Pig Works for their support and commitment towards including athletes of all abilities in this year’s 25th Anniversary celebration of the Cincinnati Flying Pig Marathon.
