Yoga on the Steps: Kansas City
Sunday, July 20, 2014
8:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. Barney Allis Plaza
Please join us on July 20 for our 2nd annual Yoga on the Steps at Barney Allis Plaza in Kansas City, MO. Yoga on the Steps is Living Beyond Breast Cancer's signature fundraising event and engages and connects participants at a large, outdoor yoga class suitable for all ages and skill levels followed by our Healthy Living Expo. Yoga on the Steps educates the community about healthy living and quality-of-life-issues while creating awareness of and raising funds for LBBC’s education and support programs, which are always provided for little or no cost.
Funds raised at Yoga on the Steps have allowed LBBC to expand services, helping tens of thousands of women a year navigate through a breast cancer diagnosis. Since its formation in 1991, LBBC has earned its national reputation for delivering responsible, clear, credible and comforting information to those affected by breast cancer.
