Besides getting locals registered to participate in the race, Jackie said their biggest goal is to let people know that it's never too late to begin adopting a healthier life style.
"We're no different than anyone else who's been struggling with their weight," Jackie said. "The only difference is the fact that we were able to do it."
Before going on the show with her son, Jackie said she'd tried just about every weight loss product on the market and spent time on dozens of diets.
"I was the typical person," she said. "I'd lose 20, gain 40. I'd lose 20 and gain 30. I'd always gaining more than I lost, I was on a perpetual incline with my weight."
When they first went out to California where the show is filmed, Jackie said she assumed she'd lose weight, but was expecting to do it though a Hollywood secret or miracle diet.
"It turned out it was nothing magical at," she said. "It was nothing that they could do for us other than inspire us and show us. They couldn't lift your leg for you. They couldn't do a thing for you, you still had to do it."
Now, the Evans say they hope to inspire others with the tools and knowledge of their own success.
"We can't do this for you," she said. "But we can inspire you and we can show you and we can create activities for you."
