Pau and Marc Gasol
Marc and Pau here. We are very excited to be putting together an awesome experience for you with the help of our friends at Prizeo.
With just a small donation to the Gasol Foundation, you’ll be entered to win a chance to hang out with us in LA. The donations will help our mission of empowering young people to live healthier lives and fight childhood obesity.
We'll fly the winner and a friend out to Los Angeles and set you up with a place to stay. Then, it’s time for some basketball with us – we can shoot around, run through one of our NBA workouts or even play a little 2 on 2…. Whatever you like! Afterwards, we'll grab some lunch at one our favorite restaurants.
Good luck guys! Your generosity will go a long way in helping our foundation do great things, so we very much appreciate your support.
– Marc and Pau

During the past four decades, obesity rates have soared among all age groups in the United States, increasing more than four-fold among children ages 6 to 11. Today, nearly one-third of children and adolescents are overweight or obese. That’s more than 23 million kids and teenagers. If we don’t act to reverse the childhood obesity epidemic, we’re in danger of raising the first generation of American children who may live sicker and die younger than the generation before them.
The Gasol Foundation focuses its time, energy, and financial resources on increasing physical activity and healthy eating, with an initial emphasis on school-age children in Memphis and Los Angeles. Specifically, the Gasol Foundation works to reduce childhood obesity through three core areas of development:
1. Increased physical activity in school;
2. Increased physical activity in communities;
3. Healthy, affordable food.
