Making Your Miles More Meaningful – SOSMentor Shapeup

There is still time to join a “Charity Team”.  Check out Carole and Robert founders of their charity and running the marathon!

Carole and Robert Donahue are not just any couple. Husband and wife for over four decades, they have a combined 70 years experience as educators and, together, they founded an innovative, non-profit organization aimed at improving the health and wellness of underserved students in the Los Angeles area through after-school mentoring programs. As they approach their 70’s, Carole and Bob show no signs of slowing down—literally.

So this year, Carole and Bob will be running the LA marathon for their non-profit organization, SOSMentor ShapeUp. Their participation in this years’ marathon represents the next step in their fight toward defeating childhood obesity and getting our country on the road to good health.

Carole and Bob have spent years helping children learn how to eat well and get fit. Always acting as an example for the youth they serve, they decided to run in the LA Marathon because they believe it to be the perfect embodiment of what they advocate. For years, Carole and Bob have trained students to lead a healthy life which, like training for a marathon, requires a large commitment but yields huge rewards.

Many people justifiably wonder why they would decide to train for their first marathon at this point in their lives. As Carole says, “We’re doing it for the kids!”
