Did you know that childhood obesity has more than tripled in the last 20 years? Or that 40% of low-income students in the L.A. Unified School District are overweight or obese?
Here at SOSMentor, we are taking matters into our own hands - and feet! Our ShapeUp Team is running in the 2012 Honda LA Marathon to "de-feet" childhood obesity by raising funds for SOSMentor's nutrition and fitness education programs, and serving as community health advocates and healthy role models for kids.
We believe that by running in a marathon together, we can unite our collective energy to raise awareness - and dollars! - to create a brighter, healthier future for our kids. You can support us by dropping a few coins in our bucket ;) Whether you are able to donate $5 or $500, every bit counts!
