The public will have an opportunity to join one of the winners from "The Biggest Loser" in a one-mile walk Saturday around the Roseville Galleria.

Olivia Ward, the champion of Season 11, will share her story and tips for getting and staying healthy at 8:30 a.m. in the Center Court near JCPenney.

Ward became the biggest loser after dropping 129 pounds – nearly half her weight – during her 22 weeks on the TV show. She now maintains her weight through a healthy diet and exercise

Following her presentation, Ward will lead the audience on a mile-long walk through the mall.

The free event celebrates the one-year anniversary of the mall's Walk to Thrive walking club, sponsored by Kaiser Permanente. More than 2,500 people attended the inaugural Walk to Thrive at the Galleria in February 2012, and more than 5,000 people have signed up for the walking club, according to a Kaiser Permanente news release.

The program includes an opportunity to walk with a Kaiser Permanente physician every Wednesday morning, and to ask questions about health topics.

During and after the walk led by Ward on Saturday, Kaiser Permanente physicians will be available to answer questions from the public.
