Abby Rike Event
In an instant, things can change.
Abby Rike, a loyal, hard working, lover of life, faced an unfathomable tragedy in October 2006. In light of losing her beloved husband, 5 ½ year old daughter, and 2 ½ week old son in a fatal car crash, with God’s grace, she chose to forge ahead in her new life. Deciding there was more living to do in this life, in May of 2009, Abby embarked on a very public journey of healing and wellness when she went on NBC’s hit reality series “The Biggest Loser.” Abby began her journey on the show weighing in at 247 pounds. Despite suffering a stress fracture early on, while on the “ranch” she lost 46 pounds. She then went home utilizing the knowledge she gained and lost an additional 54 pounds to weigh in at 147 pounds at the December finale. Abby feels blessed to have had the opportunity to realize God’s grace full circle and feels compelled to share with others what she experienced firsthand. She continues her healthy lifestyle and vigor for life and is a living example that even in your darkest hour, there is always hope.
