Trailer Choir’s Big Vinny Donates Biggest Loser Workout Shirt to Tour de Cure

Marty McFrog/Big Frog 104

Trailer Choir‘s Big Vinny went from a Type 2 diabetic, weighing 450 pounds to a healthy 240 pounds thanks to the Biggest Loser.  And now he’s giving back. Vinny donated his Biggest Loser workout shirt before he lost all his weight for the Tour de Cure.  Don’t worry, he washed it first.  I smelled it.  But the shirt does have a tear in the bottom.  I wonder if he ripped it in a fit of anger.

Vinny has been my motivation to not only get on the bike, which I’m not comfortable with yet, but to ride 15 miles in the Tour de Cure, June 3rd at Verona Beach State Park.  Vinny not only took the time to talk with me about his fight with diabetes and how to keep going, even when you feel like quitting, he’s donated a number of items to our raffle.

Vinny was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes before going on the Biggest Loser and getting his life and weight in order.  He’s looking and feeling great and still gets in his daily workouts.  Vinny and Butter are also hitting the road again to play their music to fans.
