Shape Up RI is a statewide exercise and weight loss challenge founded by Brown Medical School student Rajiv Kumar on the belief that the solution to healthy living lies in the power of teamwork and peer support.

This health campaign encourages Rhode Islanders to pursue healthy lifestyles through increased physical activity and better nutrition. Participants compete on teams and track weight loss, exercise minutes, fruits and vegetables intake, and/or pedometer steps over a twelve-week period in our Spring challenge or an eight-week period in Summer Shape Up RI.

Over the past seven years, more than 60,000 Rhode Islanders have participated in this successful program, losing thousands of pounds, walking millions of miles, and proving that teamwork is a powerful prescription for taking control of our health.
