Do you want to fight childhood obesity, be a community health advocate, and experience a once-in-a-lifetime achievement all at once?
Then join SOSMentor's Team ShapeUp for the 2012 LA Marathon! You can help raise money for SOSMentor's afterschool programs that educate and motivate young people to make healthy eating choices, get fit, and become leaders in their community.
You don't have to be in perfect shape or have run a marathon before. The only requirements are passion and a desire to fight childhood obesity. With the support of Team ShapeUp, you can - and will - cross the finish line. And our kids will thank you for "going the extra mile" to give them a healthier future.

Demand for SOSMentor's ShapeUp program is high; but before we can bring the program to a school, the necessary funds need to be raised. That's why SOSMentor is putting together a team of people from all walks of life to participate in the 2012 LA Marathon and raise funds for ShapeUp.
When you join Team ShapeUp, you will be making a direct impact on our youth by enabling SOSMentor to reach even more students throughout Los Angeles. You will be a role model for adults and kids alike. At the same time, you will get to experience one of the greatest achievements of a lifetime: completing a marathon.
Many people dream of participating in the legendary LA Marathon, but never actually do it. With the support of our team, including group training on Saturday mornings and great fundraising incentives such as nutrition counseling, you can - and will - cross the finish line! SOSMentor Co-Founders Bob and Carole Donahue are both approaching their 70's and walked the marathon for the first time last year! It doesn't matter whether you walk or run on the big day - Team ShapeUp will be there to help you every step of the way.
