Hi Family and Friends!
I am very excited to have joined the Common Ground Yoga Team for Yoga Reaches Out 2019. What the heck is this you may ask? Well, this is an annual fundraising event that supports the Boston Children's Hospital to continue its amazing work for kids and families in the Boston area and beyond.
Why now and why through CGY? Well, my yoga journey began almost 5 years ago at Elements III Yoga, now CGC.
What began as a class on the day the studio opened, became a week of yoga, then a month of yoga, and now 5 years of yoga. In 2016 I completed my 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training and last Summer I officially became part of the amazing staff at CGY. Yoga has really changed my perspective in life and my priorities too. I am now a full-time SAHM and a part-time meditation and yoga teacher.
I am happy that Yoga Reaches Out and Boston Children's Hospital are collaborating to do so much good. I am grateful to be able to contribute in some way to a hospital that has provided the services that my family has needed over the years by doing something I love, Yoga. There is no doubt that when my children have needed to see a specialist, Gavin and I have driven to Boston to Children's to consult one of their doctors. I am sure many of you have done the same.
My fundraising goal for Yoga Reaches Out in 2019 is $750. I hope you can contribute to this cause by donating to my page and I hope we can go far and beyond the set goal.
The fundraising period culminates with a day-long yogathon on April 28, 2019. Yup, some people run marathons, walk for 3 days, etc. I am committing to do one full day of yoga. During this day-long yogathon, more than 1,000 yogis will come together for an inspirational day of yoga, music, and fundraising - all to help bring peace and healing.
This year's donations will benefit Boston Children's Wellness Program and Every Child Fund.
Support me in helping give strength to families coping with a sick child.
Thank you very much in advance!
