Did you know that 40% of low-income students in L.A. Unified School District are overweight or obese? This generation of youth may be the first to live shorter lives than their parents, due to obesity-related illnesses.
Here at SOSMentor, we're taking matters into our own hands - and feet! Team SOSMentor ShapeUp is running in the 2013 LA Marathon to "de-feet" childhood obesity. All funds raised will benefit students in SOSMentor's nutrition and fitness education programs.
There are 3 things you can do NOW to help us build a healthier future for our youth:
1. Join Team SOSMentor ShapeUp for the LA Marathon and help raise funds for our programs.
2. If you don't want to run in the marathon, you can still join our fundraising team. Just click JOIN OUR TEAM on this page and share the link with your family and friends.
3. Or you can simply make an individual donation. Whether it's $5 or $500, every dollar counts!
