Event will be filmed by local producers O2 Media as part of an upcoming episode of Mission Makeover that will air nationally on Lifetime TV in 2015.
(POMPANO BEACH, Fla. – PR.Com/LOG – October 23, 2014) The award-winning series Mission Makeover® is gearing up for a new mission — to take on the battle against breast cancer. Jamie Eason breast cancer survivor, fitness model, and co-host of the series will lead Season 4’s contestants as they walk, stroll or stride as a team for the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk that the American Cancer Society will celebrate on Saturday, October 25, 2014 at 8:30 a.m. in Boca Raton, Florida.
Mission Makeover is a 13-week national TV reality series airing on the Lifetime Channel that follows the powerful journey of women on a mission of a lifetime – to completely transform their lives in the areas of fitness, health, wellness and family relationships.
Jamie Eason’s catalyst for her breakthrough into fitness was her personal diagnosis of breast cancer in her early twenties which led to a drastic lifestyle change. Motivated and inspired to stay fit, she entered and won the title of World’s Fittest Model at her first competition in 2006. Her other fitness achievements include landing an official sponsorship with Bodybuilding.com and signing on with Oxygen magazine as a model and writer. This year, Eason became the new co-host of Mission Makeover.
“I can’t think of a better way to encourage the ladies of Mission Makeover to exercise than to support a cause so near and dear to my heart. Events like this really emphasize how precious life truly is. As co-host of Season 4, I really hope to inspire the ladies to be proactive about their health, embrace change and never look back,” said Jamie.
The series will follow the journey of six women who live in South Florida, and after an elimination round, the “Final Four” will run in the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Event. The event will take on a special meaning for one of the contestants whose mom is currently managing Stage 4 Breast Cancer.
Jamie, who is flying in from Texas for this event, will be joined by Billy Beck III, the Season 4 contestant’s personal trainer/coach of Mission Makeover, and two time winner of Met-RX World’s Best Personal Trainer and Personal Trainer of the Year. Beck has also been featured in Men’s Health and Rolling Stone.
