Her name is Ruby and she lives in Savannah, Georgia.
If you caught last season’s “Ruby” on the Style network, then you already know the sweet, sassy and nearly 500-pound Ruby Gettinger. To watch the show is to feel like you know her. "Ruby" gives you an intimate look at her struggle with weight – why she gained it, how she’s losing it, and how it’s changing her life.
This summer you could have a chance to get to meet Ruby in person.
As part of her mission to raise awareness of the obesity epidemic, Ruby is embarking on a “Walk Across America.” From New York to Los Angeles and several stops between, Ruby hopes to bring together people who face weight-loss challenges of their own.
By walking with people around the nation and sharing her own weight-loss journey, Ruby’s ultimate goal is to put a face on obesity and inspire others to take action.
Take a walk with Ruby this summer and get on the road toward a healthier life.
All of the walks with Ruby will be free, open to the public and will welcome individuals of all ages and fitness levels. Click here for more information.
