Help the Shape Up Shoppe get a new Roof

The Shape Up Shoppe is one of the longest running businesses in the Bayview neighborhood. Since 1980 this organization has developed high-quality workouts and helped change the lives of hundreds of its members. 

As COVID-19 hit we knew that we were going to get hit hard considering we are a small, locally-owned gym. And of course, it was during this time that our roof decided to give up. 

Bayview has always been our home. Over the past 40 years that our organization has existed, we have seen the neighborhood go through tough times and bounce back once again.  We have always made a commitment to work with as many Bayview businesses as we can, including buying gift cards at every Bayview shop right when they open. Watching this neighborhood grow has been absolutely amazing and now we are asking that same neighborhood for help. 

Our roof can no longer be repaired with a quick fix,and government assistance or bank loans have been difficult to acquire at this time. Please donate what you can to help keep this woman-owned business up and running! With your help we can fix our roof and continue helping the people of Bayview and Milwaukee get in shape for the next 40 years.
