Organized by: Karen Williams

EVENT DATE Oct 29, 2016

THE STORY:

As of December 22, we have raised almost $7,400 from a variety of sources -- CrowdRise donations, cash/check contributions, raffle ticket sales, change from the sofa, etc.  We're definitiely in the home stretch and would still love to meet our fundraising goal.  We are grateful for any help you can offer.  Thank you! 

The Reality:  Cancer takes your breath away; yoga gives it back.

The Goal:  We passionately believe that all cancer patients should have access to affordable therapeutic yoga for an extended period of time. Two of us have experienced firsthand the benefits of movement and present moment practices during cancer treatment. Please help us raise the $7,500 needed to maintain and grow our FREE Yoga for Cancer classes in 2017.

The Background:  What we've accomplished with THRIVE in the past two years has been nothing short of miraculous! We used the nearly $5,000 raised in 2014 to provide partial scholarships for 24 yoga teachers to receive specialized training in therapeutic yoga for cancer patients. Tara Prinster, a yoga for cancer expert, offered a 3-day Yoga4Cancer training at Yoga for Life in May 2015. These teachers returned to their communities, offering compassionate healing to many individuals whose faces we may never see and whose names we may never know. Some of the teachers are right here in Charlotte, bringing yoga to members of our community who are on the challenging cancer journey.

Funds raised through the THRIVE 2015 event allowed us to begin offering two FREE weekly Yoga for Cancer classes at Yoga for Life. Over 40 individuals have benefited tremendously from the meditation, breath work and appropriate movement provided in these classes.  The sense of community and mutual support developing in these classes is inspiring!

The Event:  On October 29, Centered Wellness and Yoga for Life will host a full day special event that will include free classes, fun activities, delicious free food, cool vendors selling fabulous retail items and an amazing raffle featuring 30 items with an estimated collective value of almost $4,000. Please join us at THRIVE and/or donate to help individuals in cancer treatment receive the healing benefits of yoga!
