- About Us
Ohio Valley Goodwill is excited about its first-time sponsorship of the PigAbilities event as part of the Flying Pig Marathon this year and runners, walkers and rollers are all busy getting signed up for the big event on Saturday, May 6th at 1 pm. PigAbilities is an empowering option for all ages and abilities and participants commit to going the distance by making healthy choices in their lives. The PigAbilities event takes place when there are fewer crowds, increased accessibility and more parking. While there are no timing chips or first place winners, PigAbilities participants should be willing to “go the distance” by making a commitment to enrich their lives through being more active and making healthy choices. On Saturday, May 6th participants will gather for a 1:00pm Start Time and walk, roll or stroll the final mile on the actual Flying Pig Marathon course! At the Finish Line each finisher will receive a PigAbilities medal to commemorate their achievement.
In addition, Goodwill is also looking forward to the debut of its NEW and Improved “Pig Pop-Up Shop” at the Flying Pig Expo on Friday, May 5th and Saturday, May 6th. With a larger display space, Goodwill will have an incredible selection of running and work-out gear for the whole family at remarkable prices! This year’s Flying Pig Marathon promises to be one of the most event-filled and fun ever with lots for athletes of all abilities to do. Register today and plan to join Goodwill at this year’s Flying Pig Marathon, Expo and PigAbilities race on May 5th and 6th. For more information, visit www.flyingpigmarathon.com.

For the past several years, Goodwill has been a feature at the two day Expo event with its very popular Goodwill “Pig Pop-Up Shop” where race participants can purchase running gear for unbeatable prices. This year’s Goodwill “Pig Pop-Up Shop” will be a star attraction at the Flying Pig Expo event on Friday, May 5th and Saturday, May 6th with a huge selection of running items for all interested race participants.
With its history of involvement with the Flying Pig Marathon in a host of different ways over the years, the opportunity to become the official first-ever Title Sponsor of the 2017 PigAbilities event was a welcome chance to support athletes with disabilities in an inclusive and wonderful way. Thanks so much everyone for your on-going support of Goodwill’s mission of helping people to experience personal success!
