Dr. Sumi Kawaratani has made an incredible contribution to SOSMentor in the past few years, lending her time, energy, and expertise to multiple programs and events. Sumi has mentored students in the ShapeUp program at Hollywood Hiugh School and at Santee High School, among others. Indeed, Sumi provides a great example for her students. In 2011 and 2012, she decided to "walk the walk" by running in the Honda LA Marathon. After training for 24 weeks, Sumi made it through the 26.2 miles and crossed the finish line hand-in-hand with SOSMentor Co-Founders, Carole and Bob Donahue. Now in March, 2014, she's doing it again for the students!
We would like to thank Sumi, once again, for all that she has done to support SOSMentor and our students!
