JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Some biggest losers from The Biggest Loser reality show are in Jackson to help you get fit this weekend.

The Biggest Loser Run/Walk is a 5K and 15K taking place in downtown Jackson Saturday. Friday is the last day to register for the event.

Mom and son Jackie and Dan Evans were contestants on Season 5 of The Biggest Loser.

The Evans are promoting this weekend's race. The duo also lost a combined total of 225 pounds on The Biggest Loser.

Friday morning, Dan joined the WLBT morning crew to demonstrate some moves that helped him shed the pounds.

"I mean I can really tell you from being an overweight teen who was made fun of and bullied and kind of lived that life of hiding behind myself to becoming a brand new person and finding self-confidence in myself and really learning to become someone who loved myself," Dan said.

Registration for the run-walk is open until 8 p.m. Friday at the Jackson Convention Complex. The race starts at 9 a.m. at the Mississippi Museum of Art.
