Why Become a Mentor? To help save a life now and
in the future!
It's a fact that obesity and malnutrition in childhood are strong
risk factors for childhood and adult degenerative diseases. Our
country is currently facing a growing epidemic of unfit and
overweight children and there is a pressing need to solve this
impending health crisis. Through the ShapeUp program, you
can do your part to help get America on the road to good health.
A small commitment on your behalf will not only help to reduce
the rate of childhood obesity and related illnesses, but will also
help to increase youth participation in regular physical activity,
create student health advocates and teach high school students
the value of responsibility.
